Event description

Description

Expanded Architecture - Temporal Spatial Practices is devoted to Australian architectural icons of modernism by Harry Seidler, casting current artistic perspectives on Bauhaus ideas and its advocates.

The book comprises discussion of site-specific works and essays exploring diverse notions of an expanded architecture through artistic experimentation, public participation, and interdisciplinary scholarly discourse contextualized in three high-rise buildings in Sydney’s central business district designed by Harry Seidler, who studied under Walter Gropius at Harvard University. Following the Bauhaus tradition, Seidler is also well known for his extensive collaborations with such artists as Josef Albers, Alexander Calder, Sol LeWitt, Frank Stella and Lin Utzon, relationships that are a backdrop to this project.

Book Contributors include: Sarah Breen Lovett, Bellemo & Cat, Vladimir Belogolovsky, Thea Brejzek, Amanda Cole, Cottage Industries, Karen Cummings, Campbell Drake, Elizabeth Drake, Kate Dunn, Paola Favaro, Tina Fox, Ryuichi Fujimura, Phillip Gough, Billy Gruner, Eduardo Kairuz, Francis Kenna, Ainslie Murray, Claudia Perren, Kate Sherman, Nina Tory-Henderson, Elena Tory-Henderson, Lawrence Wallen, Lindsay Webb et al.
