Robin Boyd - Living in Australia
Robyn Boyd, Mark Strizic
Originally published in 1970 Living in Australia provided Boyd with an opportunity to describe his own approach to design. This new edition, co-published with the Robin Boyd Foundation, includes new colour photographs by John Gollings and essays by renowned architects Kerstin Thompson and Rachel Neeson reflecting upon the importance of Boydâ€™s work.
This book is deemed to be Boydâ€™s design manifesto as he articulates his design principles and uses his own buildings as to illustrate his intentions. Living in Australia is described by Professor Philip Goad of Melbourne University as Boydâ€™s most important book as it is the only one of his nine published books where he writes about his own work.
Living in Australia is comprehensively illustrated with black and white photographs by Mark Strizic together with plans prepared by Boydâ€™s own office. In the absence of a published monograph of Boydâ€™s work this book provides an excellent introduction to the work of one of Australiaâ€™s most significant and influential architects.
Living in Australia also publishes for the first time, a significant portfolio of architectural photographs by the late Mark Strizic.
