Abstract

The 1958 Oxford conference marked the eclipse of Beaux- Arts and non-modernist architecture in Great Britain. At the conference, a coherent policy was achieved throughout the recognised architecture schools in Great Britain, institutionalising the shift from an arts to a science profession1 in that court& Australia apparently achieved a united shift away from the Beaux-Arts model eight years prior to the Oxford conference when, fuelled by a popular enthusiasm for a science-based profession, that model was unanimously rejected by the national Heads of Schools meeting m 1950. This paper will discuss these changes in architectural education in Australia during the 1950s.
