City of Sound has produced a stellar post on the State Library of Queensland, Australia - the collaboration of architects Donovan Hill & Peddle Thorpe. Despite the bias, the criticism is thorough and contextual against other library marquees notably the Bibliothèque National as well as the Seattle Public Library and is an enriching history lesson into the geospatial history of Queensland. The shortfalls of this literary contribution is not in the writing, nor the photographs which so beautifully illustrate the building and its surroundings. Rather, a hunger that emerges for more - perhaps supressed by the inclusion of drawings (plans, section, etc).
