About this set

Harry Seidler was born in Vienna in 1923, went to school in England, and studied architecture at the Universities of Manitoba and Harvard (under Gropius). He was much influenced in his work by Albers, Breuer, Nervi and Niemeyer.

"No other architect in Australia has created such a body of high quality work of comparable integrity, spanning over four decades from 1949, which illustrates the ideas of Modern architecture as a unique synthesis of technology, society and the visual imagery of this century" Philip Drew: "Harry Seidler", Thames & Hudson, 1992.

The works illustrated are in Sydney, Canberra and Hong Kong.
