On 25 August 1913 Walter Burley Griffin first came to Melbourne to find out what had happened to the fortunes of his prize-winning Canberra Plan.

This talk marks the centenary of that date.

The talk will consider Walter Burley Griffin’s architectural theory in relation to his 1911-1912 Canberra Plan. While elegant histories of Griffin’s landscapes, planning, and building works in their social and political context have been published, the proposition here is that Griffin’s architectural theory also had a broad role in all of his schemes.

Presented by Jeffrey Turnbull.
