Imagine a home designed and built especially for your family to grow, evolve and create memories in over a lifetime. The Forever House celebrates twenty-three such dwellings through the intimate stories of the families and architects who created them. These timeless homes have been captured as they are today by some of Australia's best architectural photographers, and archival drawings offer insight into the original designs. Spanning forty years from the fifties to the eighties, this volume features the country's most acclaimed architects - from Robin Boyd and Harry Seidler to Glenn Murcutt and Peter Stutchbury. Rather than the most seminal works, many of these buildings are the lesser-known gems - the modernist explorations, remote raw-timber cabins and postmodern rarities loved and often lived in for decades by the same families. They are houses that you would never want to leave - homes that transcend their era, bring endless delight to daily living and deftly respond to life's chapters.
