Colonial / Victorian / Arts & Crafts / Moderne / Contemporary
It has been said that the history of a city is written by its architects. Now, from the earliest colonial dwellings to Jorn Utzon’s Opera House and the Governor Phillip Tower, the built environment of Sydney has been faithfully recorded in Sydney Architecture.
The book lists more than 500 buildings with detailed historical, architectural, and sometimes anecdotal notes and brief biographies of leading architects. The text is supported by brilliant original photography, plus house plans, location maps and suggested tours. After several years in production, Sydney Architecture provides a much-needed guide to the architectural history of the city for both visitors and residents.
The author, Graham Jahn, is a well known Sydney architect. After graduating the the University Medal, he worked for several leading architects before setting up practice on his own. Since then he has undertaken major commissions in Australia and overseas, and been published widely in architectural matters. Graham Jahn is a Councillor of the City of Sydney and Chairman of the Planning Committee.
