This thesis examines the independent Australian architectural periodical Transition, arguing that many of the practices, concepts, and theories explored in that magazine made their way into architectural discourse from across disciplinary and geographic boundaries. The thesis adopts a necessarily multidisciplinary approach, deploying tools from historical and analytic bibliography, sociology, graphic design theory, architectural theory, and semiotics. The periodical is revealed as a gathering of disparate actors, concerns, and interests, which were nonetheless drawn together into a printed, bound, and distributable object, one that has been a significant contributor to the construction of Australian architectural culture.
