Rogue: Art of a Garden featured in <i>The Age</i>

 Megan Backhouse's gardening column in The Age featured Rogue: Art of a Garden and an interview with author Rick Eckersley on 10 July 2020. The feature weaves the story of the author's intention in creating Musk Cottage with the intention of creating a book, reflecting that both are ‘impeccably thought-out’ as well as ‘irresistibly spontaneous and highly manipulated’.

“Exquistely designed... semi-autobiographical wild ride” – Richard Goodwin's God in Reverse reviewed in Architecture Australia

Architectural academics Pia Ednie-Brown and Timothy Burke have reviewed Richard Goodwin's God in Reverse: Art, Architecture and Consciousness in Mar/April print edition of Architecture Australia. While describing his “love affair with cities,” the author acknowledges their inherently destructive nature and calls for a responsive architecture in which cities such as Sydney (around which the book is focused) are alive to their own memories, begins the review.
