Living in the Landscape

Living in the Landscape explores new and exciting relationships between landscape and design. It examines how architects increasingly use various nuanced landscape conditions as inspiration and sites for creativity.

The complexities of the Australian landscape with its beautiful but often harsh geographical and topological
physicality, questions of sustainability and climate change, and an understanding of the Indigenous relationship to landscape are all thoughtfully considered.

From the archetypal silhouette of the rural farm shed to Glenn Murcutt-inspired buildings designed with the philosophy of touching the earth lightly, the authors explore how landscape and architecture intersect. In an age where we are increasingly aware of our relationship with the environment, these breathtaking homes exemplify the possibilities of living with the land.
