Heritage research news: Common Ground: Marguerite is proud to have contributed a chapter with Catherine Deacon to the book Common Ground: Dutch-South African Architectural Exchanges 1902–1961, edited by Nicholas Clarke, Roger Fisher, and Marieke Kuipers, which is about to be released as part of Dutch History Month. We made many unexpected discoveries in doing the research and were struck by the resilience and longevity of the physical structures. Similarly, the power of archival information confirmed how architecture exists in different modes. The book contributes to the dialogue around heritage and representation in South Africa. It is the result of a transnational study into the work of emigrated Dutch built environment professionals from 1902–1961; and was initiated by the University of Pretoria and carried out with support from the Embassy of the Netherlands in South Africa, the South African Heritage Resources Agency, the Dutch Cultural Heritage Agency, Zuid-Afrikahuis and DutchCulture.

Her study had documented the legacy of Norman Eaton as preserved at the University of Pretoria, which provided the material for a contemporary analysis and extrapolation of his domestic oeuvre through the construction of a biographical-disciplinary context and chronology. Why and how Eaton’s domestic architecture expressed its lineage of forms, space, material, and detail were explored in her study. Through the systematization of his records, she was able to set up a biography within context in order to capture the critical moments in Eaton’s development and his designer’s mind. The chronological study of his domestic drawings further allowed for the tracing of African and other influences in relation to his travels and their translation into architectural expression.
