Item description for Denton Corker Marshall by Haig Beck Jackie Cooper...

Over twenty-five years ago, John Denton, Bill Corker and Barry Marshall founded the architectural practice Denton Corker Marshall which went on to become one of the most influential architectural forces in Australasia, and now has subsiduary offices in Hong Kong, Singapore, Jakarta, Ho Chin Minh City, London and Warsaw. Their buildings can be found in many countries including Australia, Japan, Malaysia, China, and Indonesia, and they are a commanding presence in the cityscapes of Melbourne and Sydney.

Notable projects on the road to architectural acclaim were the Australian embassies and consulates in Tokyo, Beijing and Hong Kong; the Adelphi Hotel in Melbourne built in 1994 aroused much attention as did the spectacular Melbourne Exhibition Center built in 1996. The opening of the Melbourne Museum in 2000 will provide a further highlight in their portfolio.

DCM is also active in Europe, presenting designs for the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh, the Bank Slaski Headquarters in Katowice and the Millenium Plaza in Warsaw.

Roman Hollenstein in

Neue Z rcher Zeitung

once described DCM as creating "buildings of minimalist precision" and the RAIA Gold Medal Jury referred to their architectural style as "evolutionary modernism". This is the first monograph providing extensive documentation of their exciting architecture.

Reviews - What do customers think about Denton Corker Marshall?

Comprehensive but Fragmented  Aug 25, 2000
DCM is a renowed Australian architectural practice and has designed many interesting projects. This book has a comprehensive coverage of its architectural works. However, the no. of photographs and drawings for each project are very limited and not fairly representative.

For example, I have actually visited the Australian Embassy Building in Beijing, China. The architectural design is very humble and static, reulting in elegant consistence with the surrounding context of the Chinese captial which has a long history. This project is definitely not recognizable at the first glance to be any works of DCM. It is the respect paid by the architects to the local context and culture which is highly appreciated. However, the photographs and drawings cannot reveal such ascent to the readers.

Generally, the photographs and drawings for the projects are fairly fragmented and in relatively small sizes, which can hardly present the whole picture of the project, not to mentioned the architect's detailing.

Consequently, as a comprehensive monograph for the practice, it is worth reading and being collected by one who likes contemporary Australian architecture.
