Sean Godsell, an award-winning pioneer of 'Australian bush minimalism', has established himself as an influence on the global architecture scene. This survey of his residential architecture features twelve houses and dwellings across Australia, each illustrated with full-colour photography and the architect's hand-drawn plans and exploratory sketches, which illuminate how each house connects to its surrounding landscape.

Featuring an essay by Godsell about the influences of Australia's particular landscapes and culture, this survey also includes an introduction by leading critic and commentator Philip Goad about the achievements of Godsell's career, and the global importance of his visionary designs. With a complete illustrated chronology.
