In this follow-up to the design classic 50/60/70 Iconic Australian Houses Karen McCartney, founding editor of interiors magazine Inside Out has compiled a selection of significant examples of Australian houses of the 1970s, 80s and 90s, each brilliantly photographed and with a depth of coverage rarely seen before.
Featured architects include Richard Leplastrier, Glenn Murcutt and Wood Marsh. The book's introduction provides social, historical and architectural context, and a review of each house features technical and practical aspects of the design and personal insights from homeowners and architects, as well as a section focusing on architectural details.
