Iconic Australian Houses: an exhibition by Karen McCartney and presented in partnership with Architecture Foundation Australia is a behind-the-scenes exploration of 30 of the most important Australian homes of the past 60 years.

The exhibition explores the design and building of these houses, as well as the experiences of those who live in them, and illustrates the emergence of a distinctively Australian approach to home design. Vivid photography, rich illustrations, 3D models and filmed interviews look beyond the physical structures to tell the story of how good design can enrich lifestyle.

Iconic Australian Houses is a travelling exhibition from Sydney Living Museums.

The exhibition is supported by exhibition partner Architecture Foundation Australia, principal sponsor Stormtech and sponsors the NSW Architecture Registration Board and the University of Newcastle. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government's Visions of Australia program.
