Book Description

15 April 2003 Harry Seidler
No other architect in Australia's history has been as internationally influential or famous as Harry Seidler. Presented in a two book boxed set, this work provides an insight into and an analysis of the designs selected by Seidler to be his most important. The first book looks at the early years of his design career. Photographs are paralleled with concise plans and essays in a dossier showcasing this Austrian-born architect's infatuation with the Australian landscape. The early designs are often in contrast to the complexities and dimensions of his later designs, which are comprehensively featured in the second book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Harry Seidler: Houses and Interiors 1 & 2 17 April 2004
By Michael Webb - Published on Amazon.com
Born in Vienna, educated in Canada and at Harvard, protégé to Gropius and Breuer, and an assistant to Niemeyer, Seidler has a classic modernist resume. He traveled to Sydney in 1948 to design a house for his parents, stayed, and has practiced there ever since, playing distinctive variations on those masters of orthogonal and organic geometries. What gives his work its special flavor is its rootedness in the sybaritic, outdoor culture of Australia, which occupies a climatic midpoint between New England and Brazil. At 80, the architect remains a passionate modernist, whose timeless, livable houses are chronicled in these two handsomely illustrated volumes with an introduction by Chris Abel, another talented expatriate. (Michael Webb is the book reviewer for LA Architect magazine.)
