"DETAILS IN AUSTRALIAN ARCHITECTURE" par Roger PEGRUM. Editions Royal Australian Institute of Architects, Red Hill. 1984.

Texte en anglais, avant-propos de Chris Hurford, illustré de très nombreuses reproductions photographiques et plans en noir & blanc regroupant 52 projets architecturaux australiens. "There is, or ought to be, a clear connection between design and construction in architecture. Most writings on architecture nevertheless concentrate in the finished form of the work and say little about the materials and techniques with which the building was created. Similarly, almost all the books about construction discuss detailing as if it were completely isolated from the processes of design. There are a number of reasons for this artificial dichotomy, not the least of which is the considerable difficulty in linking the exciting study of forms and spaces with the different scale challenges of using materials intelligently and economically. This collection of building details invites simultaneous study of both design and construction, and shows how some of Australia's leading architects have handled the finer points of their buildings..."
