    DescriptionIn this follow-up to the design classic `50/60/70 Iconic Australian Houses`, Karen McCartney, founding editor of interiors magazine `Inside Out`, has compiled a selection of significant examples of Australian houses of the 1970s, 80s and 90s, each brilliantly photographed and with a depth of coverage rarely seen before. Featured architects include Richard Leplastrier, Glenn Murcutt and Wood Marsh. A detailed introduction places the period in social, historical and architectural context, before each of the selected houses is individually reviewed in an informed and engaging style. In each example the relationship between the architect and owner is discussed, as is the linking of the building to its site, materials and architectural detailing. The author has interviewed many architects and owners for their personal insights. Each study includes a feature on the interior decoration and a discussion of designers and manufacturers of iconic furniture, fittings and fabrics. `70/80/90 Iconic Australian Houses` features stunning photography by Michael Wee, both panoramic and detailed, throughout. The homes from these three decades form a significant part of Australian architectural history. Key points a much anticipated companion piece to the very successful `50/60/70 Iconic Australian Houses`, now a classic in this category and still selling well 4 years after publication. It features 15 houses designed by acclaimed architects including Richard Leplastrier, Glenn Murcutt and Wood Marsh.
