Saunders too made use of Boyd’s contrasting approach to conclude that Sydney has a casual mood and a very lively and humanist style of architecture. He kept his focus on analysing the ‘backward looking’ approach of Sydney by studying post-1960 buildings such as Gazzard’s chapel, town houses of Rushcutter and New Castle University. Cox describes ‘The Sydney School’ as a medium to go back to the vernacular which implies a domestic and functional quality in architectural design since it makes the use of ‘open spaces and varied sections’ and timber, brick, glass and other natural materials as well. Cox manages to detail the progressive view of ‘The Sydney School’ of ‘Nuts and Berries’ leaving no doubt about its existence. On the other hand, Jennifer Taylor links this concept with the development of regional architecture in Sydney and infers that it balances the requirement of shelter and location. She points out the change by mentioning the outer appearance becoming rugged and internal becoming complex and brutal.
Thus we conclude that ‘The Sydney School’ architecture was concentrated on designing houses in congruency with the environment, economy, climate and functional approach. It adhered to the principle of creating a real expression of structure and using natural elements such as timer, brick etc. But due to lack of methodological discipline and the varied assumptions and interpretations of its evolution and development, ‘The Sydney School’ definition is not yet concretely formalised and is expected to undergo several architectural developments with the change in social and economic trends.
