About the author

A Geelong native, Patricia Callan, was raised in a suburban McGlashan and Everist house and pursued studies in Sculpture and Ceramic Design in Melbourne in the 1990s. In 2008 she created Modernist Australia, a website now social media presence, to highlight local Mid-Century architecture being summarily lost in Australia’s heated housing market.  

Patricia has appeared on ABC radio, The Design Files and Fairfax publications to champion Modernist architecture from a layman’s perspective.

Now residing back in regional Victoria in her own, 1970s, Besser bricked home, this is her first book.
