The Society of Architectural Historians, Australia and New Zealand (SAHANZ) promotes standards of excellence in the field of architectural history research with a focus on Australia, New Zealand and the Asia-Pacific region.

Fabrications (Latest issue)
An Open Issue of Fabrications is an opportunity to witness the breadth of scholarship in architectural history in our region, and this issue is no exception. We have a great variety of papers from across the spectrum of topics and approaches, with authors also ranging from some of our most experienced, to some of our most freshly minted scholars, an exciting dynamic which unfolds through this issue.
Keen-eyed readers of Fabrications online will have noticed that, as per our new “online first” approach to papers, some of the papers in this issue have been available for online some weeks and months, along with the book reviews and reports which are faster to reach publication than our peer-reviewed papers. This practice enables a more steady stream of papers available as soon as they are ready; such papers are available through the “latest articles” section of the Fabrications website through our publishers Taylor & Francis. As ever, we appreciate the contribution of reviewers to Fabrications, and thank them for their selfless work in reviewing papers.
