A place acquires meaning through human intervention and transformation. Raised to the level of architecture these transformations interpret and represent society's values and
aspirations. FJMT has a reputation as an ideas-driven practice with an agenda for strong public engagement and resolution of tectonics. 'Form Material Assembly' documents this ability to
uncover the real and often contradictory issues and potentials of a project through a very careful analysis of purpose and place.
FJMT's work varies considerably in scale yet it is
all unified by an intuitive sense of place and an elaboration of the tectonic. 'Form Material Assembly' explores and presents FJMT's wor
k in detail and places it within the strongly emerging culture of Australian Architecture. It documents the assembly and resolution of works
and studies that epitomise FJMT's contribution to the culture of place and the wider culture of architecture.
