A fresh new approach to Australian architecture. The Australian House features 46 recent houses by Australia's best architects. These spectacular and provocative houses point to the way of the future for living in the age of environmental awareness and digital technology. Fabulous forms have created a new architectural landscape across Australia, providing exciting and unprecedented spaces for living in the cities, the suburbs, the bush, and on the coast. Ingenious design solutions address the realities of dwelling in contemporary Australia, engaging with issues of affordability, environmental sustainability, cultural diversity, climatic requirements, urban building constraints, heritage requirements, and the context of alterations and additions. From Perth to Port Douglas. THE AUSTRALIAN HOUSE thoroughly documents award-winning houses designed by Australia's foremost architects. This 500-page book features photography by Patrick Bingham-Hall, with formal architectural drawings of each house. A comprehensive introductory essay and detailed project descriptions are written by Anna Johnson, one of Australia's leading architectural writers.
