STUDENT VOICE a different place - overseas students from non-architectural courses discuss their perceptions of australian architecture.
BOOMERANG MAGAZINE
 

<<The centre's axis is east-west, parallel to the roads below and hills behind, but antithetical to passive solar design principles: Where daytime temperatures can reach 45 degrees, passive solar design cannot provide great comfort levels. Nichols is also not interested in the large windows, overhanging roofs or verandahs that such a plan would necessitate. Windows would reveal too much instead of making the buildings contents precious, while verandahs 'appropriate the country', conjuring up images of owners sitting around in a proprietary way, masters of all they survey.>>

quote : DOMUS 11/01 : Anne Susskind on Woodhead International's Karinjini Visitor Centre, WA, Project Architect John Nichols
