Hot and Bothered: Save Modern Queensland

State Library of Queensland, Auditorium1




Mon 29 September 2014, 2.30 to 5.00pm

Putting the terms ‘modern architecture’ and ‘heritage’ together suggests for many an oxymoron. This is particularly true in Queensland, where our mid-century modern is increasingly lost to new development, torn down with little public comment or debate.

Learn more about the value of Queensland’s hot modernisms, and the challenges for architects working with these buildings today, in this interactive forum featuring presentations by Professor Philip Goad (University of Melbourne) and Fiona Gardiner, Director Heritage (Queensland Department of Heritage and Environment Protection). Introduction by John Macarthur and Deborah van der Plaat. 

The session will culminate in a short workshop.
