Our next panellist for our MCM Heritage discussion is Patricia Callan.

As the founder of Modernist Australia, Patricia serves us up an almost daily fix of wonderful MCM homes across Australia and her passion for the era is unbounded.

OUR PANELIST, Patricia Callan.

Patricia grew up in a McGlashan Everist designed home built by her parents in 1969 so her love of MCM was cemented as a child.

Following university studies in sculpture and glass design and enticed by the sticky-beakery nature of the web real estate market, she started Modernist Australia in 2007.

Together with website designer husband Pete Bakacs, Patricia utilises online real estate listings to highlight this country’s remarkable treasure trove of Mid-Century Modern architecture (often underneath our very noses) in an effort to preserve these wonderful houses and push the era’s sustainable, practical and glorious characteristics into the front of mainstream minds.
