I salvaged these doors from the Northbourne Public Housing Flats and Currong Towers. Now they act as mnemonic devices for what little remains of these important housing precincts and the stories of the displaced residents. The ACT Government’s Urban Renewal project led to 12 public housing sites being demolished between 2016 and 2019. The government is committed to building new public housing in the outer suburbs; however, the promise of an egalitarian city where public housing is part of our city’s gateway seems to have been lost. The remnants of the home maintenance guidelines allude to upended notions of how we make and break homes.
