When it comes to the built environment, Australia’s architectural landscape is filled with trends and advancements quite similar to those explored in the West. Nevertheless, the country maintains a distinct architectural lexicon rooted in its particular climate, landscape, Indigenous heritage and colonial past.
The country’s Western influence can be attributed to the British colonial period, which is apparent today in the Victorian-style homes and Gothic churches found all over Australia. The nation also maintains a keen interest in heritage, with structures such as the famed Sydney Opera House, Australian Convict Sites and Royal Exhibition Building receiving UNESCO Heritage status. Beyond its British ties lies an incredible landscape well-suited for architectural exploration and indoor-outdoor living. In addition to looking outdoors for atmospheric inspiration, the architectural community is committed to the landscape through ecologically responsible design.
