This year’s most popular news stories are an eclectic bunch, ranging across subjects as diverse as the announcement that Peter Cook will be designing the new Bond University School of Architecture with Brit Andresen, to the latest battle between Matt Blatt and Herman Miller over the legality of replica furniture.

The long awaited ‘homecoming’ of Kerry Hill with the opening of his State Theatre Centre in Perth drew plenty of interest, as did the announcement of plans for an encore performance with the Perth Library.
