Formatted abstract

‘Open-air school’ is the title given to a specific form of primary school classroom accommodation, built in Queensland between 1914 and 1922. A small range of open-air types sprang from the ‘portable’ predecessors, ‘tent schools’, and developed in tandem with the more conventional timber structures on the Department of Public Works repertoire.

This thesis attempts to trace the reasons for adopting open-air principles, and for the demise of the buildings, not even a decade into their existence. The fresh air theory influenced buildings throughout the world. The contemporary situation in Queensland is discussed and a building assessment is undertaken.
