Australia is very familiar with corrugated iron. It almost assumes a national identity. Patented in 1829 in England, it soon found a use in every corner of the globe in housing and industry. This fascinating history, well illustrated with historic sketches and photographs from the 19th century, moves rapidly through to the rediscovery of it as a material in the cutting edge architecture of the 20th century in full colour. Projects by Eames, Bruder, Murcutt, Troppo, Foster, Koolhaas, and Endo are included as examples of what can be achieved when imagination is applied to an old material.
