Summary
From the 1950s to the 1970s, the work of Lloyd Wright, Gropius and van der Rohe strongly influenced a generation of young Australian architects, who adopted modernist principles in their work. Karen McCartney has compiled 15 significant examples, each by a different architect, of homes that combine outstanding architectural principles and an authentic interior decor. A comprehensive introduction places the movement in social, historical and architectural context, before each of the selected homes is discussed in detail in an informed, engaging essay style. The relationship of architect/owner is discussed; as are the linking of the building to its site, materials and architectural detailing. The author has interviewed many architects and owners for their personal insights. Each study includes a feature on the interior decoration, and a discussion of designers and manufacturers of iconic furniture, fabrics etc
