Place and displacement : southeast Queensland architecture
McNamara, Andrew E. (2011) Place and displacement : southeast Queensland architecture. In McNamara, Andrew E. (Ed.) Sweat : the Subtropical Imaginary. IMA Publishing, Brisbane , Qld, pp. 181-198.
The "vernacular" housing tradition of southeast Queensland is easily identifiable. Its history is more complex. This study seeks to challenge two popular conceptions of the "Queenslander" history by showing that they actually provide contradictory explanations. The aim is to produce a more complex account of local architecture and its historical explanation so that both its past and its present practices can be better understood as a distinctly subtropical idiom. This discussion shows that such practices may respond to common concerns but that are also ever-changing.
