Explores 30 such homes overlooking remote island cliff tops, tucked in escarpments or seemingly dropped into the rainforest somewhere in Australia or New Zealand. Rather than romanticising bush & shack vernacular, the authors examine how architects use various nuanced landscape conditions as inspiration and sites for creativity. Authors at RMIT.
