'Hot Modernism' contributes to the emerging understanding that modernism, despite its internationalism, was not a monolithic cultural movement, nor one that can be understood at a national level. The vastness of the Australian continent, along with its rich climatic, geographic and cultural diversity, necessitates a more nuanced, place-based approach. 'Hot Modernism' zooms into this finer grain as it investigates and expounds the idiosyncratic, regional building practice that emerged in Queensland in the decades following the Second World War. Based on substantial oral history and archival research, this publication offers engaging first-hand accounts and vivid illustrations of significant buildings and their under-acknowledged designers.
