In 21st century Australia, amid the pressures of globalisation and the frenzied activity of daily life, there is a realisation that community matters. This highly original book looks at the explosion of municipal buildings across Australia in the mid-twentieth century and the role these buildings played in developing a sense of Australian community and society. From community centres and local swimming pools, to baby and maternal health centres, to kindergartens, libraries, bowling clubs and landscaped parks and ovals, Community shows how innovative, modern design has helped make modern Australia.
