Taringa 4068: Our Place and Time
26 mins (2002)
Through several generations of one family, OUR PLACE AND TIME traces the shape of life and death in an Australian suburb: Taringa (Postcode 4068).
The award-winning architect Rex Addison and his wife, the writer Susan Addison, describe the the genesis of the homes they have created for themselves and their children.
Using graphics, animation and photographs as well as archival footage and new material, TARINGA 4068: OUR PLACE AND TIME deals with the intersection between domestic architecture and ordinary life, the idea of home itself, and finally the hard-won wisdom that: “buildings have a destiny, just like human beings”.
