The story of Sirius in this book begins in the 1970's when The Rocks Residents' Group enlisted the support of the Builders Labourers' Federation. Together they placed a Green Ban on development in The Rocks, which saved an historic precinct and a community. The Green Ban held for four years and was lifted only when those involved reached consensus and supported the building of Sirius.

In this narrative, Tao Gofers, the architect of Sirius, explains how agreement was reached and how he designed what became a vertical village - perhaps the last, and arguably the most successful, tower built for public housing in this state.
