Mongrel Rapture: The Architecture of Ashton Raggatt McDougall
25cm x 18cm. 1616 pages, colour illustrations. Black soft leather, rainbow lettering.
“the first major monograph on Ashton Raggatt McDougall, one of the most significant architectural practices in Australia. ARMs architecture draws from a diverse territory of inspiration, including Michelangelo and Robert Venturi, computer programming and biblical verse. It has been celebratedand occasionally execratedby critics and the public alike, yet, despite the works capacity to polarise, the practice has produced some of Australias 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 Melbournes civic axis.” (publisher’s blurb)
