Alastair Swayn was an amazing architect, friend, mentor and supporter of Swell for close to two decades. He passed away on the 4th of August 2016 after a long battle with brain cancer. As part of his final project (planning his own memorial and party) Alastair engaged Swell to create a legacy book that would help to promote the Alastair Swayn Foundation, a charity to support young Australian architects.

Out of respect for Alastair, we undertook this 100pp challenge as a pro bono exercise and created an oversized publication with a case bound hard cover option and two different soft cover variations. Partly due to our exposure to Alastair's illness, Swell has started a charity to raise $20,000 to help combat brain cancer — the Groundswell website will be available very soon.
