Iconic Australian Houses: an Exhibition by Karen McCartney
A behind-the-scenes exploration of thirty of the most important Australian homes of the past 60 years presented in partnership with Architecture Foundation Australia.
Iconic Australian Hourses: an Exhibition explores the design and building of these houses, as well as the experiences of those who live in them, and illustrates the emergence of a distinctively Australian approach to home design. Looking beyond the physical structures, the exhibition seeks to tell the story of how good design can enrich lifestyle through vivid photography, rich illustrations, 3D models and filmed interviews.
Featured houses include the work of Harry Seidler, Neville Gruzman, Richard Leplastrier, Glenn Murcutt, Hugh Buhrich, Peter McIntyre and Roy Grounds.
Iconic Australian Houses is a travelling exhibition from Sydney Living Museums. The exhibition is supported by exhibition partner Architecture Foundation Australia, principal partner Stormtech and sponsors the NSW Architecture Registration Board and the University of Newcastle. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government’s Visions of Australia program.
