The Architectural Guide Australia presents over 200 projects in the vast island continent that is home to natural wonders, coastal settlements, and tropical climates up north. Each chapter, dedicated to one of the nation's eight state capitals, presents buildings that represent the major moments in the country's architectural history, from its colonial origins to the contemporary era. The book includes a short introduction to Australia's most influential architects as well as essays by Harry Seidler, John Gollings, and David Bridgman. Seidler's essay argues for the incorporation of sunlight and ­shadow, phenomena so distinctly characteristic of the country's climate, into architectural design both from an aesthetic and practical standpoint. Gollings offers a historical sweep of Australian architecture before identifying the three major architectural strands of contemporary Australia. Bridgman explores the challenges of designing in the hot-humid tropics in particular, outlining the climatic considerations that must be accounted for when building in those regions. Each chapter also includes an interview with a prominent architectural practice active in the respective city. The architects offer their views on the characteristics of Australian architecture and comment on their own practice within this context. With its comprehensive map, aerial photographs, and array of images, this book is the ideal companion for those exploring Australia.

There are a lot of good books available to help people write better. They include dictionaries, usage guides, and various types of writers’ manuals – and professional writers ought to have many of those books on their bookshelves. But most architects and other design and construction professionals are not professional writers. Instead, they are people who spend a large part of their professional lives writing. That’s a big difference, and that’s where this book will help. The Architect’s Guide to Writing has been written not by an English major, but by Bill Schmalz, an architect who knows the kinds of documents his fellow professionals routinely have to write, and understands the kinds of technical mistakes they often make in their writing. This book is designed to meet the specific needs of design and construction professionals. It’s not going to waste their time with the things that most educated professionals know, but it will help them with the things they don’t know or are unsure of. It’s not a Chicago Manual-sized encyclopaedic reference that includes everything any writer would ever need to know, because architects don’t need to know everything. But what they do need to know – and what they use every day in their professional lives – has been assembled in this book.

This book tells the story of the architects and buildings that have defined Australia’s architectural culture since the founding of the modern nation through Federation in 1901. That year marked the beginning of a search for better city forms and buildings to accommodate the changing realities of Australian life and to express an emerging, distinctive, and, eventually, confident Australian identity. While Sydney and Melbourne were the settings for many of the major buildings, all states and territories developed architectural traditions based on distinctive histories and climates. Harry Margalit explores the flowering of these many architectural variants, from the bid to create a model city in Canberra, through the stylistic battles that opened a space for modernism, to the idealism of postwar reconstruction, and beyond to the new millennium. Australia reveals a vibrant and influential culture of the built environment, at its best when it matches civic idealism with the sensuality of a country of stunning light and landscapes.

From the capital of the Aztec Empire to one of the largest megalopolis today, Mexico City has withstood enormous changes throughout its history. An overarching mosaic of Aztec, Hispanic, and contemporary Western cultures has determined the exuberant metropolis we know today, with both local and world-renowned artists and architects having invested their talents in this capital. Large-scale urban projects - such as the construction on the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) - have furthermore placed this city on the UNESCO World Heritage List owing to their tremendous artistic detail and innovative designs. With its array of 230 photographs, drawings, and specified maps, the Architectural Guide Mexico City will take you on an exhaustive tour of 100 buildings and monuments dispersed throughout the city.

The work of Cox Architects covers a wider ambit than possibly any other practice in Australia. It represents 30 years of architecture, beginning with domestic projects designed at the height of the Sydney School, a movement which perhaps created the only collectively identifiable contemporary architecture yet to emerge in Australia.

The story of Australian architecture might be said to parallel the endeavours of Australians to adapt & reconcile themselves with their home & neighbours. It is the story of 200 years of coming to terms with the land: of adaptation, insight & making do. Early settlers were poorly provisioned, profoundly ignorant of the land & richly prejudiced towards its peoples. They pursued many paths over many terrains. From the moist temperate region of Tasmania with heavy Palladian villas to the monsoonal north with open, lightweight stilt houses, the continent has induced most different regional building styles.
