This digital archive of Queensland architecture offers a wealth of information on the region's design history. The archive was originally constructed as part of the Hot Modernism project and focused on the period 1945-1975. We are now expanding to include earlier and later periods. The database comprises thousands of audiovisual and textual files that allow you to explore relationships between people, projects and firms.The database includes a number of research tools including maps, timelines and relationship clouds. Current research isfocusing on the sustainabilty of the archive, a publications arm and the enhancement of crown sourcing.
