Discover local architecture with 'Built Perth'

The City of Perth Library, Fremantle Press and Boffins Books invite you to celebrate the release of Built Perth. Debut authors Tom McKendrick and Elliot Langdon’s book explores the history and art of Perth’s architecture and encourages you to reassess the value of our built environment. 
Challenging Perth’s somewhat lacklustre architectural reputation, McKendrick and Langdon have uncovered the fascinating stories behind fifty of the city’s most iconic buildings and combined these with beautiful illustrations. The most loved and controversial architectural works of Perth are featured, from a prison built by the convicts who were to be incarcerated there to the modern-day McMansion. Books will be available to purchase on the night.
