The Australian Ugliness

The Australian Ugliness

Robin Boyd


The hugely acclaimed bestseller from considered one of Australia's maximum architects, with an creation by means of Christos Tsiolkas.

Fifty years on, Robin Boyd's The Australian Ugliness continues to be the definitive assertion on how we are living and imagine within the environments we create for ourselves. In it Boyd railed opposed to Australia's ornamental method of layout and slavish imitation of all issues American. His matters are as very important now, in an period of sustainability, suburban sprawl and inner-city redevelopment, as they have been part a century in the past.

Caustic and tremendous, The Australian Ugliness is a masterpiece that permits us to work out our environment with clean eyes. Robin Boyd's unique sketches and an afterword by way of significant modern architects supplement this good-looking anniversary version.

'Effortlessly readable, sharply observant and witty...an Australian classic.' Brenda Niall
