Harry Seidler | Australian Modernism
A brief piece on Harry Seidler’s 1950s houses in Wahroonga. Originally aired on ABC TV’s “Collectors” program.

Since watching the video and going through the 38 page pdf I found, I am awed by his history, his education, his colleagues, his work and his entire life.
