Pacific Modern
Title: Pacific Modern

ISBN: 0847827658

From the publisher:

As global epicenters of economic growth, Southeast Asia and Oceania are enjoying building booms that encompass the construction of striking modern houses designed by some of the world's most talented architects.  Sometimes these are consistently crisp residential designs rendered in the most modern forms of glass, steel, and concrete.  In other cases, architects draw on local cultural or vernacular building materials, details in stone or wood, to create houses that, while still undeniably modern, are very much of their place.

Pacific Modern is a spectacularly evocative tour of the most exciting examples of residential architecture in these regions, modern homes that reflect both the changing lifestyles of their inhabitants and the fundamental elements of their surroundings.  Among the visionary architects whose work is presented here in plans, drawings, and arresting photography are Glenn Murcutt, Sean Godsell, Burley Katon Halliday, and Fearon Hay.
