Professor Gerard Reinmuth is a Founding Director of the architectural practice TERROIR (1999) and has been Professor of Practice at the School of Architecture at the University of Technology, Sydney, since 2011. TERROIR has featured in numerous international publications, biennales and awards programs for its built work, while the practice has also been a significant contributor to architecture culture in Australia and overseas through writings, lectures, and publications. TERROIR projects have been featured in a number of international exhibitions and publications including AV Monographs special issue on emerging architects, the Phaidon 10x10/3 volume and the Phaidon Atlas of 21st Century Architecture. A monograph on the practice, titled TERROIR: Cosmopolitan Ground was published in 2007 and more recently two new publications were released, TERROIR: Instruments and TERROIR: Third Spaces. TERROIR have also been featured twice in the Australian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale (2008 and 2010) and were featured in the Danish and curated the Australian pavilion (with Anthony Burke) for the 2012 event. Gerard’s role is split between his Directorship of TERROIR’s Sydney and Copenhagen offices and his Professorial role at UTS. Taking the view that a focus on objects is a limiting factor in the progression of the discipline, Gerard is developing a theory of relational architecture with his colleague Professor Andrew Benjamin. Relational architecture responds to the post-2008 crisis and the revisiting of autonomy prompted by that era, questions the role of architecture in a carbon economy, considers future models for the practice of architecture once current business models expire, and explores the potential for architecture’s autonomy working counter to prevailing capital logics.
