Sydney Architecture 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 Opera House - one of the world's most celebrated buildings.
Notable historic architects featured in this book include Francis Greenway, John Verge and Walter Burley Griffin. Recent internationally renowned architects include Glenn Murcutt, Philip Cox, Renzo Piano, Stutchbury & Pape, Durbach Block and Alex Popov.
Over 100 buildings are profiled and illustrated with drawings and photographs. Introductory essays and detailed descriptions of each project have been written by Paul McGillick. Photography is by Patrick Bingham-Hall.
