The University of Sydney's Faculty of Architecture, Design and Planning is thrilled to present a public lecture by internationally-acclaimed architect John Denton, director of Denton Corker Marshall - one of the most significant and successful Australian-owned architecture and design practices with offices in Melbourne, London, Manchester and Jakarta.

Land Art: Nine Small Buildings, currently on show in the Tin Sheds Gallery, offers an insight into the work of Denton Corker Marshall over the last 25 years. The lecture will use these nine projects as an armature to discuss the importance of ideas about art and landscape as starting points for architecture.

Larger projects will be considered as contributions to the architecture of our time - evolving in response to site, context and the intellectual milieu, which we as architects inhabit.

Land Art: Nine Small Buildings features smaller design projects by Denton Corker Marshall, which signify its long interest in compositions that unify architecture and the Australian landscape. Seven local projects feature residential houses set within contrasting landscapes of Victoria. The remaining two showcases current, international projects: the Stonehenge Visitor Centre in the UK (2014) and the new Australian Pavilion in Venice's Giardini della Biennale (2015).
