Lyons, one of Australia’s most significant architectural practices, has produced a striking body of work over the 15 years since its inception.
More: The Architecture of Lyons, 1996-2011 presents this substantial oeuvre in monograph form for the first time.
The practice is known for its major commercial, institutional, educational and healthcare projects, including BHP Billiton Global Headquarters, Melbourne; John Curtin School of Medical Science, ANU; Central Institute of TAFE, Perth; the Queensland Children’s Hospital, Brisbane; School of Medicine and Menzies Research Institute, Hobart; School of Medicine and Research, Western Sydney; the Melbourne Brain Centre and the Lyon Housemuseum.
The buildings are all public projects. Together, they reveal the practice’s commitment to engaging with contemporary experiences of local and global cultures – ideas, new media, technologies and rapidly changing urbanism are all at play here. More demonstrates Lyons’ firm commitment to the history and culture of ideas and to how ideas might be used to create meaningful contemporary architecture.
