Six Degrees 1992 - 2012 (out of print)
Six Degrees formed in 1991, when six recent architecture graduates shared a studio space in Richmond, Melbourne. The group collaborated on small domestic and commercial commissions, public sculpture and architectural competitions. When the time came to settle on a name for the practice, the temperature on the iconic Nylex clock read an icy ‘6°’ — the name stuck, and Six Degrees was born. This 224-page volume presents extensive documentation of the built works of Six Degrees, as well as drawings, early photographs and practice documents. Written contributions by Philip Goad, Rachel Hurst, Barrie Barton, Toby Horrocks and Tim O'Sullivan capture the impact of Six Degrees upon the architectural profession and upon the cultural fabric and built environment of Melbourne, while a conversation between Stuart Harrison and the directors of Six Degrees offers a unique insight into the evolution and the workings of the practice.
