Reviewing the Performance

This is a fascinating study of one of the world's great buildings, accompanied by meticulous, explanatory drawings and photographs. It comes with dedicated mailing and e-mail campaign to architectural related media & organisations. It is strange that until now there has been no book about the Sydney Opera House that attempted to review its design. Now, in "Reviewing the Performance", a calm and careful analysis has been made of all aspects of this remarkable building. It gives consideration to the hidden problems of the competition brief, notes the difficulties of matching the radical winning design with the restricted site, and records the immense problems encountered during its construction. It also brings to light revelations about the seating and notorious acoustics. But this book goes one stage further by examining aspects of ethics and aesthetics in architecture and how a building may become an artistic masterpiece yet never reach magnificence in its primary function.
