Video: 1 Bligh Office Tower / Ingenhoven Architects

Peter Hyatt, of Hyatt and Associates, shared with us his recently completed 53-minute documentary on the 1 Bligh Office Tower. Designed by Ingenhoven Architects, the building is the first office tower in Sydney to get the highest score in the Australian “Green Star”-standard, a “6 Star/World Leadership”-certification. Derived from view corridors and the solar orientation, the 30-storey transparent office building offers unobstructed views of the world famous Harbor Bridge of Sydney and complements the opposite Farrer Place to create one of downtown Sydney’s most attractive urban spaces.

The current fascination with the ‘reconstruction’ of the architect comes as a direct response to the turbulent forces reshaping global contemporary culture. This unsettling of the professional stability of architecture for most of the past century has forced many architects to question the motivations and assumptions upon which the profession and its practice have been constructed.
