Summary The scholarship of émigré architects that arrived in Australia in the period between 1930 and 1960 has focused on developing an understanding of individual architects and their particular contribution to the discipline and profession integral to a dominant architectural historiography. Examination of how architects together form movements, aesthetic affinities, and attitudes about architecture generates an understanding of the collective dimension of the discipline, and the complexities of architectural production. Significant to the capacity of the individual émigrés architects were the opportunities gained firstly, through the network of the architecture profession and institution, and secondly with one another. On arrival, except for migrants from Britain, many émigrés faced a difficult path of migration and struggled to gain registration and thus employment in the architectural profession. What were the relationships between émigré architects and architecture’s institutional infrastructure – the institute, the university, and the profession? And how did this affect their experience of migration and resettlement, as well as their capacity for architectural production?
