Summary
"Walter Burley Griffin is best known in Australia for his connection with the design of the national capital, Canberra. Beyond architecture reveals the place of Walter Burley Griffin and his wife Marion Mahony, both as a couple and as individuals, in architectural and design history. Eminent authors from Australia and North America discuss the remarkable careers and lives of these two fascinating architects. They take us on a professional and spiritual journey from the Griffins' years in the office of Frank Lloyd Wright in turn-of-the-century Chicago and successful independent practice in North America, to Australia in their pursuit of an ideal civic democracy, and finally to a revitalised practice in India, dramatically cut short by Walter's untimely death in 1937."--BOOK JACKET
