Designed by Gary Venter, the website of top Australian architects, Harry Seidler & Associates, displays high resolution photographs of their visually stunning buildings. This article is just a comment on the quality of the site and the photos are a quick glimpse to whet your appetite. To see the full splendour you must visit the site.

Prestigious Australian public buildings and offices such as Australia Square, Shell Headquarters, Grosvenor Place and the Riverside Centre show great attention to detail, tremendous originality and style and fit in perfectly with their environment.

Helpful descriptions of each project explain the thinking behind the architecture, key features and functional or artistic reasons for design decisions.

All buildings are planned holistically and the interiors of houses, apartments and public buildings are as equally well-designed as their striking exteriors. In my humble opinion, the buildings are works of art in themselves and the modern artwork inside serves to put the icing on these delicious architectural cakes.

Harry Seidler & Associates’ budget is, of course, on a totally different scale to website designs but I think there are similar aims involved – captivate the audience with the initial appearance and message; navigate into and around the site in natural, pleasing and intuitive ways; make the inside contents fully functional but retain the high quality style; and generally make the experience as enjoyable as possible.
