About this title

Synopsis:

Over twenty-five years ago, John Denton, Bill Corker and Barry Marshall founded the architectural practice Denton Corker Marshall which went on to become one of the most influential architectural forces in Australasia, and now has subsiduary offices in Hong Kong, Singapore, Jakarta, Ho Chin Minh City, London and Warsaw. Their buildings can be found in many countries including Australia, Japan, Malaysia, China, and Indonesia, and they are a commanding presence in the cityscapes of Melbourne and Sydney.

Notable projects on the road to architectural acclaim were the Australian embassies and consulates in Tokyo, Beijing and Hong Kong; the Adelphi Hotel in Melbourne built in 1994 aroused much attention as did the spectacular Melbourne Exhibition Center built in 1996. The opening of the Melbourne Museum in 2000 will provide a further highlight in their portfolio.

DCM is also active in Europe, presenting designs for the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh, the Bank Slaski Headquarters in Katowice and the Millenium Plaza in Warsaw.

Roman Hollenstein in

Neue Z rcher Zeitung

once described DCM as creating "buildings of minimalist precision" and the RAIA Gold Medal Jury referred to their architectural style as "evolutionary modernism". This is the first monograph providing extensive documentation of their exciting architecture.
