Iconic Australian Houses: an exhibition by Karen McCartney

 

Iconic Australian Houses: an exhibition by Karen McCartney explores 29 of the most architecturally important Australian homes of the past 60 years. The exhibition begins in the 1950s and culminates in key works from some of Australia’s contemporary architects

The exhibition, at the Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery, has been curated by architecture and design editor and author Karen McCartney.

The houses featured are brought to life through vivid photography, rich illustrations, models and filmed interviews with the architects who designed the homes and the people who commissioned and live in them. Looked at by the exhibition are the works of Harry Seidler, Neville Gruzman, Richard Leplastrier, Glenn Murcutt, Hugh Buhrich, Peter McIntyre and Roy Grounds.
