Denton Corker Marshall is an international architecture practice established in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia in 1972. It was founded by architects John Denton,[1] Bill Corker, and Barrie Marshall. While Melbourne remains the design base, the firm has additional practices in London, Manchester and Jakarta.[2][3]

In Australia, Denton Corker Marshall is best known for landmark buildings[4] such as the Melbourne Museum, which features a 'blade' section of roof rising to 35 metres, enclosing a small rainforest, the Melbourne Exhibition Centre, which has a roof resembling a giant aircraft wing, and the Melbourne Gateway and Bolte Bridge, both part of the CityLink project. The firm's work in Australia has been frequently and variously described as modernist,[5] minimalist, sculptural and heroic.[6]

Other projects by the practice include the multi-award-winning Manchester Civil Justice Centre, a new visitors' centre at Stonehenge, Sydney's Governor Phillip Tower, the Museum of Sydney, extensions to the Australian War Memorial and Australian embassies in Tokyo[7] and Beijing.[8] The Australian Embassy in Beijing was the practice's first China project, establishing the practice's strong association with China over three decades. In recent years Denton Corker Marshall’s work has extended to more than 20 cities in Asia.

In 2005, John Denton was appointed as the first State Architect for Victoria.[9][10] The role aims to promote good design in the built environment in Victoria. John Denton's 2-year term as Government Architect ended in 2008.
