    “the first major monograph on Ashton Raggatt McDougall, one of the most significant architectural practices in Australia. ARM’s architecture draws from a diverse territory of inspiration, including Michelangelo and Robert Venturi, computer programming and biblical verse. It has been celebrated—and occasionally execrated—by critics and the public alike, yet, despite the work’s capacity to polarise, the practice has produced some of Australia’s most significant buildings. These include the National Museum of Australia, Canberra (2001), Melbourne Recital Centre and Melbourne Theatre Company Southbank Theatre (2008), Perth Arena (2012) and the Barak Building at Swanston Square (2015), which puts the portrait of Wurundjeri Elder William Barak at the northern tip of Melbourne’s civic axis.” (publisher’s blurb)
