The Material City, edited and curated by Ron Ringer, is a deep-dive into urban density; a celebration of the Australian architects and designers whose work addresses this growing phenomenon in innovative and exemplary ways. The book contains 50 projects and 20 essays and features, as well as an index of suggested products for urban density projects.
This book explores the work of 50 of Australia's leading architects whose work reflects the ongoing urban densification of our cityscapes. The emphasis is on medium to high rise buildings. Practitioners and academics in the field of architecture also make a contribution in the form of short, illustrated essays about the general theme of this book.
