Alternative Housing - Building with the head, the heart and the hand
Albatross 1980

Card cover
150 pages
24 x 21 cm

"Alistair Samuel Knox (8 April 1912 - 30 July 1986) designed around 1,000 houses and built many of them but he was not an architect.

Largely self taught, he believed that you could do it yourself with the use of available resources by working in harmony with the environment. In large part, these ideals were formed by the strictures of the immediate post-war period, his circle of friends in the artistic community and an independent view of the world.

He was a founding member of the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects, becoming a fellow in 1983. In 1982, four years before he died, the University of Melbourne awarded him an honorary Doctorate of Architecture.

Knox's main influences were builders in mud, particularly Justus Jorgenson at Montsalvat, Francis Greenaway, Burley Griffin and Frank Lloyd Wright."
