Aurora Place: Renzo Piano in Sydney

Aurora Place: Renzo Piano in Sydney Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Detailed history of the first high-rise designed by the Renzo Piano Building Workshop.

Synopsis:

Rarely does a new development act as a fitting counterpoint to a city's natural features. However, with the Aurora Place complex the critically acclaimed architect, Renzo Piano, has made a major addition to the Sydney skyline. This is the first high-rise building designed by the Renzo Piano Building Workshop and within its curved and slender profile are numerous innovative design concepts. Aurora Place and the smaller Macquarie Apartments building exhibit refinements of many of the themes for which RPBW is famous. This is a detailed book about a single development with color photographs, drawings, and sections.
