Australia Modern: 15 Houses in Harmony with the Land, Hardback Book

Australia Modern: 15 Houses in Harmony with the Land Hardback

Hardback

Description

Australia has wildly differing topographies and climates, and its best residential architecture draws on those site conditions in inventive ways.

This book illustrates the strength of the country's shift from British-influenced Georgian-style homes to more indigenous structures attuned to the land-a movement led by Australian architects such as Glenn Murcutt, Richard Leplastrier, and Gabriel Poole in the 1970s.

Witness a range of new houses that grapple with the locales in which they are built.

Up north, down south, and on the coast, from small and low-budget to multimillion-dollar dwellings, the focus is on the use of raw materials, energy efficiency, adaptable spaces, and embrace of the great outdoors for which the country is known.

Drawings and interviews with the architects shed light on how they apply their intelligence and creativity to produce striking buildings that are uniquely Australian.
