Australian Architecture Now
Publisher: Thames & Husdon 2000 Authors: Davina Jackson, Chris Johnson ISBN: 050034177X Format: Hardcover, 263pp, 290x270mm
Australian Architecture Now is an unusual history book. It presents two essays, 21 case studies of outstanding public and domestic projects, and in several brief chapters compares selected buildings according to similarities of either genre or style. Close examination reveals surprising evidence that Australian architecture more often reflects the personal styles and attitudes of its creators than the poetic ideal of a unique sense of place. From the core centres of Sydney and Melbourne to Ayers Rock, Queensland's sunshine coast, and the forests of Tasmania many architectural concepts of great significance have been successfully realised.
