Bruce Rickard: A Life in Architecture
Bruce Rickard was one of the most significant Australian architects of the twentieth century. A key member of the Sydney School, his practice spanned 60 years and he produced some of the most notable and recognisable houses of the period.
In Bruce Rickard: A life in architecture, architects, writers, academics and family members, including Karen McCartney and Anna Fienberg (who have both lived in Rickard houses), Babette Hayes, Philip Drew and Richard Goodwin, share their unique insights into Rickard’s practice.
Featuring never-before-published photographs by Max Dupain and Bruce Rickard’s hand-drawn plans, this stunningly produced book celebrates the pared-back beauty and ingenuity of Rickard’s buildings.
Julie Cracknell and Peter Lonergan are directors of Cracknell & Lonergan, a multidisciplinary architecture and design practice.
Sam Rickard, one of Bruce Rickard’s sons, is a production designer, art director and interior designer.
