Iwan Iwanoff and the
designers that think beyond.
Even though Bulgarian-born architect Iwan Iwanoff spent the first three decades of his life in Europe before moving to Perth, his stunning brutalist designs were perfect for the harsh Western Australian sun. His buildings capture the light, play with it and make it part of the design. He was also known for his use of mixed materials, in particular concrete, wood and glass.
AS ONE OF OUR MOST DYNAMIC ARCHITECTS, HIS OUT-OF-THE-BOX THINKING, AND INNOVATIVE IDEAS HAVE INSPIRED A GENERATION OF AUSTRALIAN ARCHITECTS. AROUND THE WORLD, THE SAME UNIQUE APPROACH TO ARCHITECTURE AND THE USE OF DIFFERENT BUILDING MATERIALS, INCLUDING BAMBOO, CAN BE SEEN IN HOMES STRETCHING FROM ASIA AND SOUTH AMERICA TO THE MEDITERRANEAN.
