Founded in Melbourne, the Australian architectural firm DCM is one of the most important players in the Pacific region. DCM is represented in East Asia as well as the Near East and Europe with numerous structures and also has offices in Jakarta and London. In the last five years DCM has substantially increased its international presence with ambitious and widely noted building projects and showcased its modern architectural language, which is marked by minimalism as cool as it is unusual.
Among the most important recent projects presented in this book are the Civil Justice Centre in Manchester and Webb Bridge in Melbourne. With the Chong Qing International New Town, the firm has taken on the planning of an entire city for the first time, but surely not the last.
