How often do you look up and take notice of the buildings that surround you? Although a relatively young city, Perth in Western Australia has a rich architectural history filled with visionary architects and iconic designs. From hard times in the fledgling colony to modern innovations changing the way we live and work, every building has a story to tell.

Through beautiful graphic illustrations and captivating histories, Built Perth uncovers the stories behind 50 of Perth’s most fascinating and beautiful buildings. It is a welcome reminder that the built environment is more than just the place where people live – it is a reflection of who they are.
