7 NOV 2019 • BOOK LAUNCH ➤ Digital Monuments, by Dr Simone Brott

You are invited to the QUT Design Lab’s Dr Simone Brott for her book launch, Digital Monuments, in Conversation with Tom Morgan, Monash University, to be Launched by Professor Kim Dovey, University of Melbourne, on 7th November at Readings Carlton, Melbourne.

Digital Monuments radically explodes “iconic architecture” of the new millennium and its hijacking of the public imagination via the digital image. Hallucinatory constructions such as Rem Koolhaas’s CCTV headquarters in Beijing, Frank Gehry’s Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, and Zaha Hadid’s Performing Arts Centre in Abu Dhabi are all introduced to the world by immortal digital imagery that floods the internet―yet comes to haunt the actualised buildings.

You can pick up your copy of Digital Monuments online at the Readings Website.
