Successful architecture is the result of many contributing factors, including a client-architect relationship of trust and understanding, an attitude of exploration and an interactive collaboration between the architectural teams, consultants and builder.

Joseph Paonessa was senior project coordinator on the Sidney Myer Asia Centre while working with Director Bob Nation of Nation Fender Katsalidis, Melbourne. By describing the program, design considerations and project interactions, Joseph is able to reveal the elements and attitude that are embodied in the creation of great architecture.
