This work offers a visual tour of 150 architect-designed homes in Australia from the period 1950-1965, a period marked by experimentation, unconventional house types, different materials, new forms of construction, and embracing new technology. Essays consider the expression of aesthetic and egalitarian ideals in the houses and the importance of the great Australian dream of owning a single family house during the period. Black and white photographs are included. Distributed in the US by ISBS. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
