Architecture & Design Wrote About the Life of Late Dirk Bolt
Architecture & Design wrote in detail about Austin Macauley's late author, Dirk Bolt. Dirk Bolt passed away on 13th December 2020, leaving behind a legacy of sustainable urbanism. Not long before his death (in October 2020), he combined his life journey as an architect and thoughts on how cities are to be planned in an autobiographical book, Of Towns and Countries. The detailed article published on Architecture & Design’s website covered the many aspects of Bolt’s life, sharing the images of the great works of architecture that he designed. Bolt’s designs did not only transform into buildings but also stand tall as reminders that all infrastructural development must be sensitive towards environmental impact. The article, published on 16th February 2021 also mentioned the various awards that Dirk Bolt won over time. You can read the complete article here.
Bolt’s autobiography is a sum total of his travel and temporary settlements over continents and the Pacific. It’s not just an account of his family life but also a more organized display of his work life, his work-life challenges, the efforts he jolted for the cause of sustainable development. His professional role as an architect kept him closer to the cause and he even worked with the UN to help materialize what he idealized. He lived most of his life in Australia, becoming an award-winning architect in Hobart and Canberra. In all the work he did and all the designs he made, climate change and environmental sustainability always topped as his priority.
