Dr Christine Garnaut, director of The University of South Australia Architectural Museum opened the newest exhibition at the Unley Museum. An exhibition apparently 2 years in the making.
This is an exhibition called Bungalows and Beyond, depicting the birth of Bungalows in Unley, predating the post war bungalow frenzy around Adelaide. It is a photographic history of bungalows built before the great war, and architect designed.
This opened the door for the trendy proliferation of bungalows around Adelaide after the war, invariably without Architectural input. An exhibition worth seeing for anyone interested in the history of Unley, and/or an interest in protecting Unley’s built form.
The Unley Museum is tucked away around the corner from the Civic Centre in Edmund Avenue. It is run by volunteers and partly funded by the Friends of the Museum with assistance from council. The curator Elizabeth Hartnell is doing a great job.
To Elizabeth and her team. Congratulations.
Pay the museum a visit. It is worth it.
