The latest issue of Architecture Australia is available to view online. If you are a New South Wales resident, you can use your registered library card to start reading straight away!
Australia Architecture is the national magazine of the Australian Institute of Architects. In this issue, you can read up on projects like Garden House, which blurs the boundaries of home and garden, or Pelican Street and its sense of remoteness in an urban setting. Sheona Thomson explores the impact of “digital disruption” on physical spaces of teaching and learning, while Steve Coster explores the digital age and workplaces.
