Styles and Terms from 1788 to the Present
From Old Colonial Georgian to Late Twentieth Century Immigrants' Nostalgic, this book provides a comprehensive survey of the styles of Australia's built environment. For the first time the houses, commercial buildings, churches and other architectural works in Australia are described and illustrated so that the reader can readily identify and classify them.
More than 700 photographs illustrate the main text and many more are used in the illustrated glossary, which is an important reference source in itself. A timely work which will be an invaluable guide for architects, students, teachers, builders, journalists, estate agents and tourists, and for the ordinary citizens to see and recognize and appreciate that important product of Australian society - the built environment.
