Tasmanian Modernism represented in new publication

I'm excited to announce that my photographic and written work will be published in a new hard cover book due out at the end of November, 2013, titled Australian Modern Design: Mid-20th Century Architecture & Design

"Australian Modern Design is a unique publication providing an insight into Australian mid-20th century architecture, design, and cultural history. Featuring contributions from local architects, writers, collectors and designers, Australian Modern Design celebrates the diversity of ideas in post-war Australia. Discover mid-20th century architecture, design, art, fashion, furniture, caravans, and more in this eclectic journey into Australian design"

My chosen subject, representing Tasmania, is the evolution of the glass curtain wall in Tasmania (building designs that are entirely covered in glass) throughout the mid 20th Century.

  1. Well done, you! Hopefully you will become totally famous in an area (mid 20th century design) that has probably been under-analysed till now.

  2. Oh well done. A great achievement! Xx
