The Architecture Museum is a unique repository of more than 200,000 items significant to South Australia’s architectural history. A research facility open to the public, the collection includes architectural drawings, practice records, personal papers, photos, slides, books and periodicals. The Architecture Museum has as its aims the acquisition, preservation and management of architectural and related records produced by private practitioners based in South Australia. The Architecture Museum has used Oral History in several of its research projects, from interviewing post-war homebuilders about their experiences to current architectural practitioners about their use of computer aided design.
