Australia’s Home by Robin Boyd
Architects and amateurs alike will delight in the Robin Boyd’s informative detail and quiet humour which led to a fresh view of Australia’s streetscapes and suburbs.
People read Australia’s Home for pure pleasure as an eventful illuminating story. Householders read it to see their house and streetscapes afresh through Boyd’s eyes, their own vision both criticised and enriched by his. Architects and planners read it to agonise with Boyd over built forms and townscapes . . . But the book is most remarkable of all as history, a great bit of poaching by an architect-journalist who never claimed to write history at all.
