6. The Round House. Designed by Alex Jelinek in 1957, this house has been described as one of Canberra's most significant postwar international-style buildings.The Round House was designed with a circular steel frame that radiates out from a central pool to form various rooms. Large sheets of glass were also used to achieve what was thought to be one of Australia's first modern, complex geometric home designs.In Australia you don't have to look that far to find a contemporary architect who is inspired to design using similar principles of simplicity, dignity and strength. The innovative and ground-breaking architects whose work is described here have provided terrific inspiration.Photo by Flickr user Canberra HouseMore: Midcentury Styles Respond to Modern Life
