Shifting Views: Selected Essays On The Architectural History Of Australia And New Zealand

Author: Andrew Leach   Antony Moulis   Nicole Sully  



In 1984, a small group of architects and historians from Australia and New Zealand met in Adelaide to present research on the history and historiography of architecture. Since then, under the wing of the Society of Architectural historians, Australia and New Zealand (SAHANZ), these meetings have become one of the key architectural history conferences internationally.

Shifting Views draws together a selection of writing from across twenty-five years of these conferences to provide a fascinating view into the region's architectural history discipline. The essays collected here, from such diverse thinkers as Judith Brine, Joan Kerr, Miles Lewis, Sarah Treadwell, Philip Goad, Julie Willis and Mike Austin, reflect some of the most illuminating debates from these conferences.

Together these essays capture a tone of critical enquiry and the conditioins of writing architectural history in Australia New Zealnd. Shifting Views takes us into the mechanics of architectural history-making, exposing its foundations and demonstrating how they can be called account. It shows us how architectural history has been made and revised, giving us a glimpse of the means by which our past becomes our history.
