Abstract

An invitation to consider the existence of critical architecture has prompted me to present another way of looking at the 'hybrid' architectures that are often encountered in the Australian outback. In particular, the view that 'the term critical architecture implies a mode of architecture that opposes dominant economic and cultural strands, and hints at an alternative form of practice that does not reproduce prevailing values becomes extremely pertinent. Within this context, in this chapter I will examine certain small architectures and built landscapes in places remote from urban sensibilites, where people build and occupy marginal environments that reveal the site-specific ecological, economic and social conditions which are at play in the desert.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
