    The authors of this introduction to the study of Australian architecture enable their readers to learn “‘through’ rather than ‘about’ the built environment”. They direct an environmental-artistic eye at the Australian landscape and city, which was only beginning in the 1990s to shrug off the cultural cringe that kept architects’ eyes on the accomplishments of other nations. Filled with references to colonial and indigenous legacies, and with illustrations, maps, advertisements, town plans and other historical detail, it creates for every reader and aspiring architect the solid foundations of an understanding of Australian architecture.
