Situated Objects documents drawings, buildings, and projects realized by Stan Allen since 2012. The book focuses on eight small buildings in landscape settings, incorporating houses, studios, and temporary constructions. It is organised into three sections dealing with “Outbuildings,” “Material Histories,” and “New Natures.” Each section opens with concise reflections by Allen on the respective theme and introduces the buildings under that theme. A series of essays by Allen, Jesús Vassallo, and Helen Thomas contextualise the work. The texts and Allen’s drawings are in dialogue with a suite of photographs by Scott Benedict, which are threaded throughout. The book is beautifully crafted; exclusively made up of line drawings and monochrome photographs.
