Working paper

Home magazines and modernist dreams: designing the 1950s house

URP Working Paper No. 47

15 Aug 1995
Description

Alastair Greig's paper examines the modem home through the medium of Australian House and Garden, and qualifies some functionalist sociological interpretations of the 'role' of home magazines and their promotion of modernism. It expands the argument of a later chapter in The Stuff Dreams Are Made Of" Housing Provision in Australia 1945-1960 (MUP, 1995). This book is a study of the interconnections between the socio-economic and technological context of home building, the mechanisms of housing supply, the nature of housing demand and the influence of housing design in that period.
