Discover Local Architecture with Built Perth
2 September @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Join Anne-Louise Willoughby and architectural designers and authors Tom McKendrick and Elliot Langdon for a night that will help you appreciate local architecture.
Debut authors Tom McKendrick and Elliot Langdon are set to celebrate the release of their new book Built Perth with an event at the City of Perth Library. Author, journalist and broadcaster Anne-Louise Willoughby will lead a robust discussion on the history and art of Perth’s architecture – a discussion that will encourage Western Australians to reassess the value of our built environment.
In a refreshing take on Perth’s somewhat lacklustre architectural reputation, McKendrick and Langdon have uncovered the stories behind fifty of the city’s most fascinating and historical buildings and combined these with beautiful graphic illustrations. The most loved and controversial architectural works of Perth are featured, from a prison built by the convicts who were to be incarcerated there to the modern-day McMansion.
Books will be available to purchase on the night.
This is a free event but places are limited, so please reserve your spot via eventbrite.
