Living in the Landscape
Living in the Landscape examines 30 breathtaking rural and remote homes, exploring the new and exciting relationships between landscape, architecture and design. Now that improved infrastructure has made living outside rural centres an attractive and viable option, a new generation of country dwellers are creating bold and beautiful sustainable homes in some of the most stunning rural areas of Australia and New Zealand.
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, as the book examines how architects are increasingly using various nuanced landscape conditions as inspiration and sites for creativity.
From the archetypal silhouette of the rural farm shed to Glenn Murcutt-inspired buildings designed with the philosophy of touching the earth lightly, the authors explore how landscape and architecture intersect. In an age where we are increasingly aware of our relationship with the environment, these breathtaking homes exemplify the possibilities of living with the land.
