Summary In contemporary Australian architecture the relationship between edifice and environment is often felt more strongly than elsewhere, and Shane Thompson works prove it; climate, habitat, and landscape represent privileged reference points in his constructions. These elements are brought together under a design perspective that pays attention to the developments of modern architecture, technology and the world of art
