Conrad Gargett | 1890 - 2015
Conrad Gargett is one of the longest established architectural practices in Australia, which began in Brisbane in 1890. In 2015 when celebrating 125 years of its history, this book was commissioned by the current Directors, to look at what the practice had achieved in that time and to suitably record some of the major works produced.
The book is beautifully designed and includes 560 images, both photographs and drawings, compiled from the firm's extensive archive of more than 10,000 projects. The collection demonstrates the significant influence Conrad and Gargett has had, not only on the development of Brisbane, but also further afield.
The publication is edited by Robert Riddel and contains research by Donald Watson and Susan Hill as well as contributions by Michael Keniger, Malcolm Middleton and Bruce Wolfe.
