The book includes an introduction to Australia’s most influential architects as well as essays by Harry Seidler (1923?–?2006), John Gollings, and David Bridgman.
Each chapter also includes an interview with a prominent architectural practice active in the respective city. With its comprehensive maps, aerial photographs, and images, this book is the ideal companion for those exploring Australia.
