Summary Robin Dods was renowned for designing extraordinarily innovative, stylish houses. Dods did not practice in the cool climes of northern Europe, but the sub-tropical environment of Brisbane, Australia, and in response developed a unique architectural approach that stands as one of the earliest examples of climate-responsive design in this country
