Neville Gruzman's dramatic and intensely personal architectural style found its ideal medium in the broken landscapes around the showcase harbour. His principles were founded in the modernist, organic wake of Frank Lloyd Wright, but he brought his own dynamism and idiosyncratic solutions to the tasks persented by client and landscape.

Gruzman's impact on Sydney's architecture and growth also carried well beyond his practice, as he was an outspoken civic advocate as Professor of Architecture at The University of New South Wales, Mayor of Woollahra, writer and architectural activist.

Gruzman is a magnificently visual book as two of the country's greatest photographers, Max Dupain and David Moore, recorded his works in the 50s, 60s, and 70s. Their photographs illuminate twenty-four Gruzman buildings here.
