Fibro Coast
Fibro Coast

Co-authored with Alan Hill, Fibro Coast takes its name from the humble Australian ‘fibro’ houses built post-war as simple spaces by the sea. Known in its most simple form as ‘a tent with walls’, fibro houses are a rare example of a uniquely Australian architectural vernacular. These spaces, and other historical coastal dwellings, face an uncertain future as development interests inevitably win out over heritage. This work grew from a collaboration with Virginia Rigney from the Gold Coast City Gallery and an exhibition of the same name.
