    DescriptionAustralia's most renowned modern architect, Harry Seidler designed over 180 projects, from single-family houses to apartment buildings, multistory office towers, and prominent government commissions, mostly in Australia, but also in Austria, France, Israel, Italy, Mexico, and Hong Kong. This is the first and long-overdue book to give a complete overview of this award-winning architect's body of work. Seidler graduated from Harvard Graduate School of Design, where he studied under the legendary Walter Gropius and Marcel Breuer; in 1946 he studied with Joseph Albers at fabled Black Mountain College in North Carolina; and he later worked as Marcel Breuer's first assistant in New York and for Oscar Niemeyer in Rio de Janerio before establishing his own practice in Sydney in 1948.

    Review quote
    "This is an exceptionally well-researched and poignant tribute to a man who changed the architectural legacy of a continent and reinterpreted a movement." -"Identity Magazine Dubai"""Lifework" provides an overdue update to the 1992 monograph...the new book provides superior reference material, with well-presented photographs and drawings..." -"The Monthly""Australian architect Harry Seidler was the flag bearer for Antipodean modernism. In a career that spanned nearly 60 years, the Viennese-born architect re-shaped the Australian skyline, bringing a very personal vision of hard-edged design to the country. Seidler spent his formative years working around the world with the masters of modern architecture - Gropius, Breuer, Albers and Niemeyer - before making his mark with a house he designed for his mother in 1950. Lifework traces the architect's career all the way from such early houses to the host of towers, galleries and embassies that grace Australia's major cities and beyond" -"Wallpaper"
