The firm's expertise in hospital architecture, for example, earned them an international reputation, and for Arthur Stephenson, a knighthood and the prestigious RIBA Gold Medal. The sheer quantity and ubiquitous nature of the firm's output, from the 1920s to the 1970s, has affected the lives of countless numbers of everyday Australians. Landmark buildings in Melbourne include the MCG's Members' Stand and Long Room, Jessie McPherson Community Hospital, Mercy Hospital, Freemasons Hospital, St Vincents Hospital, Royal Banking Chambers of the E.S. and A. Bank, Colonial Mutual Life Assurance Building, and the Royal Melbourne Hospital. Their Sydney buildings are equally impressive, with the United Dental Hospital and the IBM Centre redefining the city's architecture. Stephenson and Turner also worked on several prominent projects as far afield as France, United States, New Zealand, Taiwan, Indonesia, Iraq and South Africa.

National Museum of Australia:
Tangled destinies  A-R-M & Jencks, C.
The National Museum of Australia has been a long time coming; the idea can be traced back to the time of Federation in 1901. The Museum was designed by Melbourne-based architects Ashton Raggatt McDougall and Robert Peck von Hartel Trethowan. The project originated with an International Design Competition which the architects won in 1997, and it sits on an 11 hectare site on the Acton Peninsula on Lake Burley Griffin. This monograph looks at three aspects of the NMA complex: the architecture of the National Museum of Australia and the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies buildings, the landscape, and the exhibitions in the National Museum - through many pairs of eyes. As well as receiving national and international acclaim, the building recently won Blueprint Magazine's Best New Public Building Award, against entries from Nicholas Grimshaw and Zaha Hadid amongst others. This important building is superbly documented in this great new book, with essays and analysis by Charles Jencks, Dimity Reed and Michael Markham. Images, Australia, 2002, 180pp, HB.

Verandah People: Stories  Bennett, J.
A selection of poignant Australian stories for whom the ever-present verandah is both a stage & a private viewing space, a shelter from heat & disquieting bushland, & a seductive barrier to participation in the wider world. Most effective are his portraits of women, many of them young dreamers & searchers. A subtle sense of loss pervades Verandah People, but the overall impression is dreamlike - these characters inspire compassion even as they watch the world go by from the safety of their verandahs.
