The Sydney School of Architecture, Design and Planning is one of the oldest architecture schools in Australia, and is housed within one of the country's founding universities-the University of Sydney. This book tracks its development since Leslie Wilkinson's appointment as Australia's first Chair in Architecture 100 years ago.
The school has been at the forefront of wave after wave of innovation in architectural education and practice; and a formative influence in the development of architectural science, urban planning, computer-aided design, environmentally and socially sustainable design, and more. The story of an institution, with all its specificity, Sydney School reflects on broader transformations in the education of architects, designers, and planners and the many specialisations that gather around these professions.
