Andrew Andersons has reimagined Sydney’s built environment throughout his esteemed architectural career. He first gained national attention in the 1970s with the ‘Captain Cook Wing’ of the Art Gallery of New South Wales. After two decades in the Government Architect’s Office, Andersons joined PTW Architects where he designed the City Recital Hall, the Sydney Theatre, the Riverside Theatre in Parramatta, many domestic projects, as well as the National Gallery’s new entrance and Indigenous galleries, and oversaw both the transformation of Pier 4/5 at Walsh Bay into the Sydney Theatre Company and the Circular Quay shoreline. In this landmark book Bernice Murphy and Leon Paroissien profile Andersons’ key role in the transformation of Australian architecture and his own personal story.

A very fine and welcome monograph pulling together his outstanding legacy of public and private architecture.'
