Walter Burley Griffin is well known in Australia for his connection with the design of Canberra. Beyond Architecture reveals the place of 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 take you on the Griffin's professional and spiritual journey from their years in the office of Frank Lloyd Wright in turn-of-the-century Chicago; to Australia in their pursuit of a 'democratic civic ideal'; and to a revitalised practice in India, dramatically cut short by Walter's untimely death in 1937. The Griffins embarked on over 350 building, landscape and urban design projects as well as interior schemes, furniture, lighting, floor coverings and tableware. But their legacy extends beyond design and architecture - the democratic, social and environmental ideals which informed their work and lives continues to inspire today.
