See Inside


As many architects turn to Australia for inspiration, Sean Godsell – a pioneer of Australian minimalism – has established himself as an important influencer on the global architecture scene. This survey of his residential architecture features twelve house projects across Australia, each illustrated with full-colour photography, as well as a selection of the architect’s hand-drawn plans and exploratory sketches, which illuminate how each project relates to its surrounding landscape.

Featuring an essay by Godsell about the influences of Australia’s landscape and culture in his work, this survey also includes an introduction by leading critic and commentator Philip Goad about the achievements of Godsell’s career to date and the importance of his visionary designs. With a complete illustrated chronology of Sean Godsell’s works, this overview will be an important resource for architecture lovers and design enthusiasts.
