Publisher: Thames & Hudson 2012 Author: Conrad Hamann ISBN: 9780500500347 Format: Softcover, 704pp, 295x210mm
Cities of Hope Remembered/Rehearsed tells the story of a life lived through architecture and design. Drawing on the success of the critically acclaimed Cities of Hope, this publication includes a facsimile of the highly prized original book and reflects on Edmond and Corrigan's extraordinary contribution to Australian architectural culture. In addition, this volume includes a comprehensive showcase of 'never-before-published' theatre works along with archival letters, articles and rare reflections on a rich and diverse career.
Designed by Stuart Geddes of Chase & Galley with Peter Corrigan, Cities of Hope Remembered/Rehearsed is the antithesis of the ubiquitous, glossy 'coffee table' architecture book. Instead, it delivers an inspiring and rigorous survey of the works of this internationally respected RAIA Gold Medal winning Australian architectural practice. A valuable resource and collectors' item for students, practitioners and all those engaged with a passion for design.
