STREETS OF YOUR TOWN
Streets of Your Town is a two-part series focusing on the aesthetics of our suburbs. Tim Ross – comedian, broadcaster and Architecture enthusiast – is the tour guide for this very personal journey exploring how and why our suburbs look the way they do.
From the Modernist boom in the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s to the McMansions that came to dominate our suburban landscape from the ‘80s, our design decisions say a lot about the times we live in, our shifting aspirations, and our confidence in the world.
Australians used to build small modest homes designed by pioneering architects including Robin Boyd, Syd Ancher, Roy Grounds and Harry Seidler but we now build the biggest houses on earth, 10% larger than the average American home.
Travelling the country and gaining unprecedented access to some of our most iconic homes and meeting their owners, peeling back their history and revelling in their beauty, Tim poses the question: From Modernism to McMansionism – how did we get here?
As seen on ABC TV.
