A number of people have contributed to this project to create a valuable resource for those interested in Western Australian architecture and designed landscapes. First and foremost I would like to thank Duncan and Oline Richards for their generous support and for allowing access to their personal archive. Their writing and passion for the history of Western Australia’s built environment is the continuing inspiration for my own interest in this field. Thanks goes to the tireless work of my research assistants, Margret Hurrelbrink, Shane Winter and Kathryn van Vugt. I am grateful for what each, in their own way, have brought to the process. I would also like to acknowledge the support of my colleagues from the Department of Architecture and Interior Architecture at Curtin University of Technology and in particular Dr. Stephen Neille for his guidance and encouragement.
Special thanks goes to Peter McDonald (Director, Public Creative) and Sid Thoo (architecture.collective) for their creative efforts in bringing the web site into being. Finally, I thank Lotterywest for their financial support for this project.
