The Strange – Welcome to Newman
Master of Architecture Design Studio, 2015
Studio Leader: Emma Jackson
When the Pilbara was developed in the 1960’s, the Governents and the industries of the day tried to replicate Perth’s suburbs – 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, backyard, hills hoist; was this a good idea for the Pibara? Were Perth’s suburbs a good idea for Perth? How would Jeff Howlett, Iwan Iwanoff and Sergio Leone do things differently? If things had been done differently would the Starship have brought Led Zeppelin to Newman on the 17th February 1972? Imagine that. WELCOME TO THE NEW NEMAN.
