Tim Reeves and Alan Roberts have carefully selected a diverse array of private and public dwellings from the first 100 years of Canberra. They reveal the social history and context of each home, and the innovation and foresight of both owners and designers. From the spartan cottages of the first workmen in the capital to the sleek energy efficient homes of the new millennium, every home has a story. Vibrant colour drawings, photos and plans illuminate this well researched and easy to digest book.

What a lovely read!
I can pick up anywhere in this volume & find something new.
Informative & enjoyable
I am interested in Australian Architecture, especially the 50s, 60s, 70s, and this book covers my years in Canberra.
The diversity of Canberra architecture is a revelation. Excellent photography and historical research.
