Harry Seidler’s Umbrella is an incisive and personal collection of writings on architecture and design by writer and editor Joe Rollo. From an up-close account of Jørn Utzon’s re-engagement with the Sydney Opera House and a poetic rendering of the design and making of the landscape at TarraWarra Estate and Museum of Art, to encounters with Harry Seidler and a walk through the multi-billion dollar Victorian Desalination Plant, Joe Rollo opens readers’ eyes to an exciting way of looking at the built world. Written in the easy, straightforward and engaging language for which he has become known, the book brings clarity and passion to considerations of the problems and pleasures of looking at architecture and design in Australia.
