Architecture Inspired by Australia

"Following the success of `Architecture inspired by New Zealand`, comes the next book in this series combining the best of residential architecture together with spectacular and unique landscapes.The inspiration for the designs that are featured in the book have been largely informed by the nature of the environment, whether it is red plains, steep escarpments, lush gullies, rolling woodland or golden beaches.

Twenty-two Australian top architects, many of them award-winners, discuss what drove their design and the factors they took into consideration concerning site, materials and approach. The designs they came up with are a unique and sympathetic response to the different environments.

Each architectural project is introduced by a panoramic landscape photo of the area with text describing the region and stunning photos of the house. These convey the look as well as the feel of the design. Floor plans of each project are included at the back of the book to give a better overview of the layout.Architectural theorist Joseph Buch?s commentary provides an intellectual rigour to the designs in a way that is thought-provoking but easily digested while Dave Sullivan gives a brief history and botanical information on each of the different regions that are featured.For anyone interested in leading edge architecture in some of Australia?s most beautiful and unique settings,
