Reseña del editor:

Australia's search for its identity has often led to the imposition of inappropriate European cultural values on a very different landscape. In architecture, the error of implanting old-world styles in this new world has led to a desperate need for an independent architecture. That need is answered by Glenn Murcutt, and his development of a strong and attractive, yet practical, architectural form. He has achieved this through a close scrutiny of Australian landscape and climate. This book looks at Murcutt's planned and built work and the importance of that work to architecture and culture in general.

Descripción de la librería

We stock books about art, design, fashion, heritage/history and gender/sexuality, specialising in books about Australian, Asian & Pacific arts, crafts design and cultural history. Since we are committed to marginalised and innovative social and cultural practices, we are more likely to have books on women artists or dissident life than coffee-table books on iconic figures. This shop is in Sydney's legendary Kings Cross area, which has provided alternatives to this country's normalcy and suburbia for the last 80 years. Colloquially known as 'The Cross', this name signifies Antipodean bohemia, streetgangs and a world-famous red light district etc. THE CROSS Art + Books is a foundation member of The Bookdealers Guild (NSW).
