The celebration and documentation of the significant works of little-known architects is always welcome. Such accounts are made all the more poignant when the buildings under examination have contributed, quietly and substantially, to the making of a city or where they have underpinned the introduction or development of a specific building typology. Graeme Trickett and Ken Charlton’s Repose: the contribution of Dirk Bolt to Canberra’s architecture and planning is one such study, bringing to the profession’s attention, largely through Trickett’s careful and conscientious research over many years, the Canberra buildings of Dutch émigré and architect Dirk Bolt. Following on from its important 2007 monograph on Enrico Taglietti (also featuring contributions by Ken Charlton), the Australian Institute of Architects’ ACT Chapter has continued to foster detailed research on individual Canberra architects, and this book, like its predecessor, will become an important historical document. It’s also an example of institutionally sponsored research that might be followed by other chapters across the country, bringing to light undiscussed architectural gems and exposing the work of colleagues otherwise overlooked by the nation’s limited number of architectural histories.
