Living in the Landscape Book


This product is currently sold out.

Living in the landscape remote cliff tops to the heart of a rainforest, this little hardcover book features some of Australia and New Zealand’s most breathtaking homes. As urban life becomes increasingly more demanding, many people are choosing to build away from the city in a way that acknowledges and connects with the landscape. Living in the landscape explores new and exciting relationships between landscape and design. It examines how architects increasingly use various nuanced landscape conditions as inspiration and sites for creativity. The complexities of the Australian landscape with its beautiful but often harsh geographical and topological physicality, questions of sustainability and climate change, and an understanding of the Indigenous relationship to landscape are all thoughtfully considered.
