Jeremy Till on God in Reverse: “a lifetime’s work of thinking to make and making to think.”

God in Reverse Reviews

Jeremy Till on <i>God in Reverse</i>: “a lifetime’s work of thinking to make and making to think.”

Jeremy Till, British architect and writer, and Head of Central Saint Martins, London, has offered some comments on Richard Goodwin's God in Reverse. “God in Reverse tracks a lifetime’s work of thinking to make and making to think. It is presented as a series of thought experiments – visual, material, intellectual – which ask ‘what if?’, where the ‘if’ is sometimes extreme but eventually lands in a set of spatial provocations. If Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities has Venice at its core, then God in Reverse has Sydney as its object of tough love, unravelling the stranglehold that financialised space has placed...

<i>Angelo Candalepas: Australian Islamic Mission</i> "records a significant and rare achievement"

Erich Mayer has reviewed Angelo Candalepas: Australian Islamic Mission for ArtsHub Writing & Publishing: “Angelo Candalepas: Australian Islamic Mission records a significant and rare achievement – the building of a beautiful, modern, architect-designed place of worship.’ While noting that some of the more detailed sections “are not designed for the layperson”, Mayer highlights both Angelo Candalepas' and Maryam Gusheh's essays as providing comments of interest to the general public.

Angelo Candalepas: Australian Islamic Mission – the story of the Punchbowl Mosque

‘Mosques in Sydney are rarely designed by architects’, writes Maryam Gusheh in her essay in Angelo Candalepas: Australian Islamic Mission, and are rarely in formalised and dedicated places of worship. The Punchbowl Mosque in Western Sydney, therefore, is particularly unique. Designed by Angelo Candalepas and Associates for the Australian Islamic Mission, who won the National Award for Public Architecture in 2018 for the mosque's design, the Punchbowl Mosque represents a poignant moment of collaboration across faiths and cultures. Angelo Candalepas: Australian Islamic Mission tells its story through four written reflections from faith, architectural, cultural and engineering viewpoints. The mosque is now iconic for its singular,...
