Sydney Architecture chronologically documents the rich architectural tradition of Australia’s oldest and largest city.
From the early elegant Regency mansions through to the recent structurally expressive houses, the city’s best architecture has always responded to the stunning landscape.
Sleek modern houses contrast vividly with the unruly bushland and the beautiful harbour, as exemplified by the magnificent Sydney Opera House, one of the world’s most celebrated buildings.
Notable historic architects featured in this book include Francis Greenway, John Verge, James Barnet, Leslie Wilkinson, and Walter Burley Griffin.
Recent internationally renowned architects include Glenn Murcutt, Philip Cox, Renzo Piano, Peter Stutchbury, Durbach Block, and Alex Popov.
