This paper questions how urban and architectural forms engage with the creation of national and individual identities. It seeks to elaborate theoretical tools for doing so. Culture, particularly ethnic culture, is described as an important term that mediates between one’s association with a nation such as Italy or Australia and a sense of oneself. This assertion is particularly relevant when considering a work of everyday architecture, like an ethnic club in a multicultural society like Australia.
