This book is about the role of words and images in architecture. A documentation of the conventions of architectural representation, it is also an exploration of the many ways in which those conventions can be productively challenged, subverted, or ignored to broaden the conversation about architecture and what it means. The book assembles a series of essays and interviews from practicing architects on the role of representation in their work, alongside contributions from some of Australia’s most highly regarded contemporary architectural photographers.
Contributors include John Macarthur, Naomi Stead, Marcus Trimble, Justine Clark, Gavin Hipkins, Katja Grillner, Philip Goad, Brett Boardman, Peter Bennetts, Jan van Schaik and Elizabeth Watson-Brown, amongst many others.
