Formatted abstract

This thesis was prompted by the lack of published material, and general miasma that currently dominates the architectural profession in regard to contemporary feminism.

This thesis explores the interface between contemporary feminist theory and the built environment, in particular the feminist strategy of ’re-writing’ as presented by Meaghan Morris. In order to understand contemporary feminist strategies, both feminism and the history of the relationship between feminism and the built environment are examined. The work of Meaghan Morris and other local feminist writers is then presented. Finally, I investigate the feminist strategy of re-writing, with a personal exploration of three Brisbane women’s rooms.
