Queensland Country Towns Student Projects

  • UQFL659
  • Collection
  • 1978-1986, 2009

1 summary file, and 93 project files.

Between 1978 and 1987 third year students in Architectural Design, working under the supervision of Michael Keniger and Brit Andresen, travelled to country towns across Queensland to observe and document the fabric of place. Students were instructed to follow a consistent methodology and particular emphasis was placed on documenting in detail the main street of each country town. Over 10 years, the built fabric of a significant number of country towns was documented and collected to form the Country Towns archive. This resource provides insight into the fabric and life of country towns in Queensland before periods of change, the result of booms in tourism in the 80s and mining in the 90s and the ongoing drought induced contraction in farming. Many changes in country towns occurred before the introduction of Heritage Legislation in Queensland and the creation of the Department of Environment and Heritage in the 1980s established a level of scrutiny.

The project file for each Country Town consists of 6 sections (not all files are complete):

  1. The Town: Description to include current data and a general history
  2. Public buildings: Description to include the location and description of public buildings through measured drawings and photographs of historical data
  3. The Main street: Description to include photographs and sketches of the main street and measured drawings of street elevation, a 'Nolli Plan', a detailed cross-section and a mapping of patterns of the occupation of the street
  4. A Street junction: A detail section through fa├žade of a key building and a plan of the junction
  5. Historical Society/Museum: This visit ensured that archival research support of other project parts was undertaken
  6. Log: Students were required to record their 5-day visit in a narrative log/sketch book.
