Australian architect Robin Gibson (1930–2014) built prolifically and at expansive urban scales, and his projects also helped to redefine the culture and identity of the major capital city of Brisbane. While he seldom wrote or published on his own architecture, Gibson was well-respected in the city and awarded high honours for his contributions to architecture in Australia. While some critics have attempted to situate him within the conventional field of international modernism, or even brutalism, this volume reveals that his body of work was in fact underpinned by a distinctive vision of Brisbane as a subtropical metropolis, sensitive to climate and place, and alive with people.
