Description

The architecture of Perth reflects an inventiveness inspired by the city's growth in isolation from the rest of Australia and the opportunities presented by the city's dazzling sunlight and clear blue skies.

This book charts the progress of Perth's architects from the city's humble beginnings as the Swan River Colony, through the architecture transformed by the Gold Rush, the 1930s search for a more appropriate local architecture, and the 1950s local version of Modernism to the remarkable architecture of today's prospering city.

This book profiles buildings in Margaret River, New Norcia, Geraldton and Mullewa as well as Fremantle, Perth and the metropolitan area.
