They are also recognised for creating dramatic and sculptural Exhibition Centres, the Olympic Aquatic Centre and Superdrome, and the Australian National Maritime Museum. In concentrating on work produced in the last five years, this publication profiles and explores the musch broader idiom in which Cox Architects practice. The book is divided into two sections; the first comprising a series of essays on the nature of different project types and the second describing recent and current projects, putting philosophy into practice. While the projects have been selected for their diversity of problem solving, client requirements, context and scale, they reveal some constant passions - for enriching the city and landscape, for harnessing new technologies, and for imparting environmental sensitivity and cultural relevance to the built environment.
