Migration labour history linked to industry and national growth and how it intersects architectural narratives is yet to be comprehensively explored for the Australian context. The ephemerality, lack of authorship, and generalised or prefabricated nature of industrial sites prove challenging to architectural historians, as do labour histories and experiences in such sites. However, sites such as these are significant for temporal transformation of physical places, and the subjectivity of those persons largely unrecorded in authorised histories. The sites and their physical structures and landscapes come to stand for architects, their works, or their reception. Greater historical forces can be traced through changes to these sites.
