Title: Interview with Professor Judith Brine – A Leading Figure in the School of Architecture and Built Environment
Issue Date: Sep-2008
Series/Report no.: Series 1345 Oral Histories and Interviews;
Abstract: Professor Judith Brine joined the University of Adelaide in 1972 as a Lecturer in Architecture, becoming Senior Lecturer in 1978. By 1997 Professor Brine was the Executive Dean of the Faculty of PALACE (Performing Arts, Law, Architecture and Urban Design, Commerce, and Economics). This interview includes some personal reflections on two challenging moments in the Architecture Department during the late 1970s. First, divisions arose within the Faculty in relation to the need to incorporate a Town Planning course into the curriculum - an issue which ultimately triggered an internal inquiry. Second, much debate was generated by a push – considered to be quite controversial - to incorporate more theory and history and less design into the early years of the degree. This period of upheaval and change would come to be described by some as a time of great furtherance of the academic side of the School, and the approach adopted at the time reflected the most theoretically-oriented course offered in the country.
