17. Gloster House, Noosa Heads, Queensland, Gabriel Poole, 1984
Lightweight materials, angular composition, ecological awareness and the architect’s own quadrapod construction system make this one of the most finely resolved and transparently livable bush houses.
18. Hall House, Wilston, Queensland, Russell Hall, 1985
Restoring the notion of folly to 20th century architecture, this tower for Rapunzel displays a combination of organic lifestyle principles and sub-tropical meteorological awareness.
19. Melbourne Terrace, Melbourne, Nonda Katsalidis, 1994
A muscular, sculpted apartment block overlooking Melbourne’s markets, mixing appropriate cross-cultural eclecticism with dynamic and unexpected materials and forms.
20. RMIT Building 8, Melbourne, Edmond & Corrigan with Demaine Partnership, 1994
A spectacular piece of street theatre – Antonio Gaudi meets Darth Vader in a polychromatic explosion of architectural abstraction, representation and rhetoric.
