Iconic Australian Houses, curated by Karen McCartney and presented in partnership with Architecture Foundation Australia is a behind-the-scenes exploration of 30 of the most important Australian homes of the past 60 years.
The exhibition explores the design and building of these houses, as well as the experiences of those who live in them, and illustrates the emergence of a distinctively Australian approach to home design. Vivid photography, rich illustrations, 3D models and filmed interviews look beyond the physical structures to tell the story of how good design can enrich lifestyle.
The exhibition includes a sneak peek at one of the award-winning Australian houses featured in Karen McCartney’s forthcoming book, Superhouse: architecture & interiors beyond the everyday, which looks at stand-out contemporary architecture from across the world.
