Robin Boyd, gifted architect, writer, teacher and social commentator, was the leading Australian propagandist for the International Modern Movement in architecture. The suburban home was often a focus of his thinking, writing and criticism. In his most popular and controversial book, The Australian Ugliness (1960), he scourged prevailing tastes in both architecture and popular culture. Boyd was a very private man who left few personal letters or records. In this highly acclaimed and beautifully-illustrated book Geoffrey Serle writes predominantly about Boyd's work and public activities, allowing key selections from Boyd's writings to reveal the inner man.
