Summary The buildings of H2o architects, Tim Hairburgh and Mark O'Dwyer have been praised for their design commitment to sustainability, playfulness and their intelligent responses to a variety of sites and purposes. These architects practice what they call 'expensive modernism' in their design which are predominantly for schools, government buildings and universities. No two alike, the buildings can be brilliantly coloured like Avondale Heights Library and Learning Centre or rough and timbered like RMIT's Textile Faculty in South Brunswick. Swinburne and Deakin Universities have also benefited from H2o's unique designs, as has Victoria's State Emergency Service Headquarters. This is architecture with a difference - beautifully illustrated in the book
