About

In the 1950s, pioneering architects including Robin Boyd, Syd Ancher, Roy Grounds and Harry Seidler adapted the International style of Modernism for a nation that was ready to embrace new ideas.

Through the 1960s and '70s, Australian Modernism was tailored for local culture and lifestyle. But by the end of the 1970s, modest homes were out, and featurism was in. With massive street presence and enormous dwellings, the McMansion had arrived.

In this series, Tim Ross – broadcaster, comedian and aficionado of all things Modernism – tracks the stories of these houses, and gains unprecedented access to iconic homes to revel in their beauty and legacy in Australia's suburbia.
