Australian Architecture Now

Recording some 200 of the most significant structures and places, this volume presents Australian architecture produced during the unprecedented building boom of the mid- to late-1990s. These projects range from the breezy east-coast houses of Clare Design and Peter Stutchbury and the stadia built for the Sydney Olympics, to Melbourne's wave of daring monuments by Denton Corker Marshall, Peter Corrigan, Ashton Raggatt McDougall and Wood Marsh. Davina Jackson and Chris Johnson survey the contemporary scene in two central essays, with 33 concise chapters that explore prevailing styles and building types. The third section presents 22 extremely detailed case studies that examine the most remarkable public buildings and houses from a wide range of geographical areas.
