Red Hill, ACT Intl Specialized Book Service Inc 1985 1985 4to softcover 95pp colour & b/w illus. very good, owner's names on fep. / very good d/w. Born in Sydney, in 1939, Cox was educated at the University of Sydney, and early in his career, particularly with domestic works, he displayed a sensitivity for the materials and environment of Australia characteristic of designers associated with "the Sydney School" style. After establishing his own firm in 1967 Cox pursued his interest in architectural history with numerous publications to his credit, including Colonial Architecture of Australia (Melbourne, 1978) and Rude TimberBuildings ofAustralia (London, 1969). His work displays the pragmatism and understatement characteristic of much Australian work * Current projects show more dramatic uses of space and less obvious historic overtones. The National Sports Stadium, Canberra (1977) is an example.Australian Architects -Philip Cox is an attractive, slim paperbound volume comprised of several essays about Cox's work augmented by abundant illustrations which survey the architect's major projects. The photographs, some in color, are of good quality, and numerous plans, sections, and elevations should fulfill the demands of users of this kind of book. Appending the text is a useful, comprehensive bibliography of writings by and about Cox. This book should prove to be a valuable resource on a significant contemporary architect.
