Heritage talk: Modern church architecture in SE Queensland

After the war years, Australian communities invested heavily in new church buildings. Their locations and designs responded to a rapidly modernising society, and international calls for liturgical renewal. In Australia, as elsewhere, the 1950s saw architects break away from the nineteenth century’s determination that Gothic was the architecture most fit for ecclesiastical buildings. During the 1960s new modern and expressive forms of church architecture were adopted and experimented with. Then from the late 1960s community focused church buildings where realised that were sympathetic to their suburb neighbourhoods.

Come and listen to architect and PhD candidate Lisa Daunt as she talks about the fascinating architecture of post-war churches. Lisa will also talk specifically about the building that houses Redcliffe Museum, formally known as Sacred Heart War Memorial Church (opened in 1967, designed by Cullen Fagg Hargraves and Mooney).

Free. RSVP required.
