Australia's search for its identity has often led to the imposition of inappropriate European cultural values on a very different landscape. In architecture, the error of implanting old-world styles in this new world has led to a desperate need for an independent architecture. That need is answered by Glenn Murcutt, and his development of a strong and attractive, yet practical, architectural form. He has achieved this through a close scrutiny of Australian landscape and climate. This book looks at Murcutt's planned and built work and the importance of that work to architecture and culture in general.
