Packed full of idiosyncratically meticulous and colorful illustrations, the book provides a whimsical account of Sydney’s architecture and history. From icons such as Utzon’s Sydney Opera House to lesser known gems like Mark Foy’s building opposite Hyde Park, to the terrace houses of inner city suburbs, All the Buildings in Sydney presents each building with care, detail, and an abundance of charm.
