This book and the exhibition that inspired it illustrate ninety-seven buildings from fifty-six architectural practices spanning the length and breadth of Australia. The majority were designed during the 1970s. While acknowledging that Australian architecture is informed by, and responsive to an international language, this book focuses on structures that show ideas and regional inflections springing from the Australian context.It contains four essays on Australian design written from different vantage points by Phillip Cox, Leon Paroissien, Conrad Hamann and Jennifer Taylor.
