Living in Australia provided architect Robin Boyd with an opportunity to describe his own approach to design and his vision for Australian housing - housing that is appropriate to our lifestyle, environment, climate and culture.

Originally published in 1970, this new edition includes recent colour photographs by John Gollings and essays by renowned architects Kerstin Thompson and Rachel Neeson reflecting upon the importance of Boyd's work and its continuing relevance.

This book is deemed to be Boyd's design manifesto as he articulates his design principles and uses his own buildings to illustrate his design approach. Described by Professor Philip Goad as "Boyd's most important book", since it is the only one of his nine published books where he writes about his own work.

In the absence of a published monograph of Boyd's work, this book provides an excellent introduction to the work of one of Australia's most significant and influential architects.
