Excerpt from Domestic Architecture in Australia: Special Number of Art in Australia

NO one will deny that environment means a lot and especially the home environment. Architecture is a prime factor in creating environ ment and however good a country's schools, religious, public and commercial buildings may be, unless the domestic work is of the best, then that country is the poorer. It is in the homes that early im pressions are received and to home building that the greater part of a vigorous community's building effort is devoted.

From a brief study of domestic architecture in Australia it is evident that the trend of development has followed closely that of English work. Every phase is represented, from the sound and satisfying work of the early nineteenth century through the essays in mediaevalism to country house picturesqueness and Georgian quietness. All are there, the good and the bad. In addition there has latterly been added a manner of home building showing influences from both sides of the Pacific.

Although it is generally granted that most English domestic work reaches a high standard, the climatic and other conditions here are such that considerable modifications must be made in adapting it to these new circumstances.

And is it certain that it is wise to attempt to follow Northern meth ods of building under conditions so dissimilar? Geography suggests that the shores of the Mediterranean may be richer in suggestion, or the Californian coast manner so largely derived therefrom.
