Abstract

Published between 1979 and 2000, the Australian independent architectural periodical,Transition, was central to the transfer and translation of global architectural theory intoAustralian architectural discourse and practice. A hybrid periodical that resists simpleclassification, Transition was able to span boundaries between academia, practice, andtheory, thus providing a shared object through which actors from varied disciplinary andprofessional backgrounds were able to work collaboratively. Framing the periodical as aboundary object, this paper identifies three characteristics which made it effective in thetranslation of ideas: its marginality, vagueness, and egalitarianism.
