Cities of Hope Remembered/Rehearsed tells the story of a life lived through architecture and design. Drawing on the success of the critically acclaimed Cities of Hope, this long-awaited publication includes a facsimile of the highly prized original book, a complete catalogue of new architectural works and reflects on Edmond & Corrigan’s extraordinary contribution to Australian architectural culture. In addition, this volume includes a comprehensive showcase of ‘never-before-published’ theatre works along with archival letters, articles and rare reflections on a rich and diverse career.
Designed by Stuart Geddes of Chase & Galley with Peter Corrigan, Cities of Hope Remembered/Rehearsed is the antitheses of the ubiquitous, glossy ‘coffee table’ architecture book.

A valuable resource and collectors’ item for students, practitioners and all those engaged with a passion for design.
