There can be few other nations which are less certain than Australia as to what they are and where they are.

Brilliant, witty, scathing, The Australian Ugliness is the classic postwar account of Australian society, how we live in the environments we create, and the consequences of our failure to think about how we live.

About the Author

Robin Boyd (1919–71) is arguably Australia’s most influential architect. He was an idealist, a visionary, who believed that good design would improve the quality of people’s lives. A tireless public educator and outspoken social commentator, he designed more than two hundred buildings and wrote such classics as The Puzzle of Architecture and Australia’s Home.


A book that must be read.


Robyn Boyd was an architectural maverick. He educated the masses back in the day, and his words are still relevant today. This book should be widely read, in fact it should be on the school curriculum.
