Since its very inception, Canberra has aroused interest not only because it is a completely planned city, but also for its continually expanding body of architecture. Now, with this new guide, the visitor can sally forth with detailed information in hand about all of the major buildings in Australia's fascinating capital. As one of the few purpose built capital cities of the world, Canberra provides a fascinating case study of a nascent city. Sited on a broad valley with a man made lake and surrounded by wooded hills, the Australian capital is one of the most liveable cities in the world. The body of architecture on display is amazing, ranging as it does from fairly basic public housing to grandiose buildings for government offices, museums and a parliament house over which the public can stroll.
