Aurora Place - Renzo Piano, Sydney
Rarely, does a new development act as a fitting counterpoint to a city's natural features. However, with the Aurora Place/Macquarie Apartments complex the critically acclaimed architect, Renzo Piano, has made a major addition to the Sydney city skyline. This is the first high-rise building designed by the Renzo Piano Building Workshop and within its curved and slender profile are numerous innovative design concepts including elevated plazas where people can meet outdoors without exiting the building. Aurora Place and Macquarie Apartments exhibit refinements of many of the themes for which RPBW is famous. This is one of the most detailed books about a single development and with its many colour photographs, drawings and sections, it will be a valuable addition to the records of modern architecture.
