Synopsis: This book traces the development of the city through the evolution of its architecture and urban planning.

From the Publisher: The British founded Sydney in 1788, establishing here a penal colony in a country they regarded as uninhabited. Today, Sydney is seen as many things: an earthly paradise surrounding the most beautiful harbor in the work; a great seaport,the site of one of the world's most beautiful buildings, the Sydney Opera House; or a sprawling suburb. Contradictory and unpredictable, the city of Sydney is living testament to the dilemmas of the society that constructed it.

This book traces the development of the city through the evolution of its architecture and urban planning; from the humble origins of the first European settlement (1000 Britons, 10,000 bricks and piles of pamphlets urging the felons to chastity, all thrown together into a landscape possessed of every beauty nature can provide to the city of the year 2000, inhabited by 4 million people--dynamic, multicultual, hedonistic.

This book summarizes the history of the city and its neighborhoods, focussing on the architects, their architecture and the sociocultural climate in which they worked. Among the featured architects are Francis Greenway, Mortimer Lewis, Edward Blore, John Sulman, Walter Burley Griffin, Harry Seidler, Jorn Utzon, Glenn Murcutt and Renzo Piano.
