Spencer Fung Book Launch: 'Architecture by Hand'


This book is about Spencer Fung's love of nature and the influences this has on his work. It covers architecture, interior design and furniture, and focuses on his method of work, from keen observation and sketching, to the provenance and use of natural materials throughout his projects. The book’s chapters are on wood, stone, weave, metal and final details – the finishing touches. It visits many of the artisans commissioned by Spencer and celebrates their craftsmanship. It covers a spread of Spencer’s work including hotels, spas, restaurants, retail spaces, barn conversions, work studios and his own home.
