    The architecture of Perth reflects an inventiveness inspired by the city’s growth in isolation from the rest of Australia. A unique range of opportunities were presented by the city’s dazzling sunlight and clear blue skies.


    A Short History of Perth Architecture charts the progress of Perth’s architects from the city’s humble beginnings as the Swan River Colony.


    The scale of the architecture was transformed by the wealth created by the Gold Rush, and that extravagance was followed by a search for a more appropriate local architecture.


    A highly distinctive and very local version of Modernism then inspired the remarkable contemporary architecture of today’s prospering city.
