`Multitudes' examines the work of multi-award winning international design practice, HASSELL. Founded in Australia in 1938, HASSELL has grown to become one of the world's largest design firms, with offices in China, Singapore, Thailand, the United Kingdom and Australia. Released to mark the practice's 75th anniversary, `Multitudes' unpacks the collaborative, multidisciplinary design approach that has seen the practice thrive in the turbulent, increasingly globalised conditions of the 21st century city. Showcased projects include much of HASSELL's recent urban works in Asia's burgeoning mega-cities, as well as its signature public buildings, such as the Adelaide Festival Centre (1980), the Sydney Olympic Park railway station (1998), The National Institute of Dramatic Art, Sydney (2002), and many more. A hardback, clothbound volume with design by renowned creative studio Fabio Ongarato Design, `Multitudes' is richly illustrated and makes for a proud addition to any architectural library or personal collection.
