MULTITUDES, the book that marked the 75th anniversary of HASSELL, has been awarded by the Australian Graphic Design Association (AGDA). It received an award for book design at AGDA’s awards ceremony at Tasmania’s Museum of Old and New Art (MONA).

The book was designed by Fabio Ongarato Design, edited by Cameron Bruhn and published by Uro Media. AGDA is the peak organisation representing the Australian graphic design industry. The AGDA awards are made for excellence across design disciplines including branding, graphic design, books and digital design.

MULTITUDES is structured around a preface and five chapters by independent authors commissioned by HASSELL. Each chapter considers an issue or movement in design in the late 20th or early 21st centuries. It is followed by an exploration of projects in the HASSELL portfolio that respond to that issue or movement. It considers the development of HASSELL from a traditional architecture firm to a modern, international design practice.

The result is an insight into design and design thinking at HASSELL, rather than a year-by-year, project-by-project history of the practice.
