Author(s): Conrad Hamann
Cities of Hope Remembered tells the story of a life lived through architecture and design. Drawing on the success of the critically acclaimed Cities of Hope, this long-awaited publication includes a facsimile of the highly prized original book, a complete catalogue of new architectural works and reflects on Edmond and Corrigan's extraordinary contribution to Australian architectural culture. In addition, this volume includes a comprehensive showcase of 'never-before-published' theatre works along with archival letters, articles and rare reflections on a rich and diverse career. Designed by Stuart Geddes of Chase & Galley with Peter Corrigan, Cities of Hope Remembered is the antitheses of the ubiquitous, glossy 'coffee table' architecture book. Instead, it delivers an inspiring and rigorous survey of the works of this internationally respected RAIA Gold Medal winning Australian architectural practice. A valuable resource and collectors' item for students, practitioners and all those engaged with a passion for design.
Conrad Hamann wrote the first edition of Cities of Hope (1993) and co-authored Kevin Borland (2007), which won the Bates Smart Award for Architectural Writing and recently contributed to the Encyclopedia of Australian Architecture (2011).
