Description - Cox Architects and Planners by Robyn Beaver

From its origins as a leading proponent of the 'Sydney School of Architecture' in the 1960s, COX Architects & Planners, known more commonly as COX, has grown to become one of Australia's largest and most successful practices with hundreds of projects and awards, spanning four continents. This new book, "COX Architects & Planners: 1960-2010", as well as being the firm's third book with IMAGES, is the most comprehensive overview to date of this journey. Philip Cox is responsible for the concept design of most of the firm's projects and reviews all the designs produced by the practice. He has overseen the design of projects in the firm's impressive oeuvre in Australia, South-East Asia, China, the Middle East, South Africa and Europe.With in-depth project descriptions, drawings, plans, and spectacular colour photography, this book presents many of the firm's highly awarded projects for major international sporting facilities, such as the Melbourne Cricket Ground, the athletes' village for the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne, as well as major arts centres and museum complexes, convention centres, education facilities, local government facilities, facilities for justice, including prisons and police stations, urban and master planning, bridges and transport projects.
