Mongrel Rapture: The Architecture of Ashton Raggatt McDougall


Mongrel Rapture is the first major monograph on Ashton Raggatt McDougall, one of the most significant architectural practices in Australia. ARM's architecture draws from a diverse territory of inspiration, including Michelangelo and Robert Venturi, computer programming and biblical verse. It has been celebrated - and occasionally execrated - by critics and the public alike. This exquisite volume, designed by renowned Australian graphic artist Stuart Geddes, is an illuminated manuscript every bit as provocative and puzzling as ARM's buildings. Ranting, funny, and reflective in turn, Mongrel Rapture is many books in one binding. It radically rethinks what an architecture publication can be. Thanks to URO Publications.
