12 memento january 2002 Canberra Following Griffin: A Design History of Australia's National Capital is a fascinating, in-depth account of what happened to Walter Burley Griffin's vision for Canberra, and the later developments that created the Canberra we know today. A design masterpiece in itself, the book contains over 200 architectural plans, drawings and maps, many of which have rarely been seen before.The original drawings that Griffin submitted for the Federal Capital Design Competition will be on display in our Canberra building from April until September in an exhibition called A Vision Splendid: How the Griffins Imagined Australia's Capital. Canberra Following Griffin is essential reading for professional town planners, architects, historians and all those interested in the design of our national capital.To purchase a copy of this limited edition book priced at $90, telephone (02) 6212 3609 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Paul StanhopeReid1933--2001 espite a degenerative illness, Paul continued working on his critical account of Canberra's development with great enthusiasm and commitment. He worked closely with our publishing team to finalise his manuscript and was able to see the first proofs. Paul Reid helped shape Canberra as we know it today. He was director of architecture at the National Capital Development Commission (NCDC) from 1968 until 1974 when he was appointed chief architect, a position he held until 1983. It was during this time that Paul rediscovered Walter Burley Griffin's plan for Canberra and became an enthusiastic supporter of Griffin's design. As NCDC chief architect, Paul worked with such leading architects as Philip Cox, Romaldo Giurgola, Colin Madigan and Harry Seidler and was responsible for the design briefing and management of such Canberra icons as the National Gallery, the High Court of Australia and new Parliament House. Paul was professor of architecture at the University of NSW from 1985 until his retirement in 1998. It was during this time that Paul worked on the Canberra Following Griffin manuscript, a project that took 10 years to complete. In this remarkable publication he has left behind a legacy of his contribution to Canberra's development and the architectural profession. He is greatly missed by all who knew him. Paul Reid, author of Canberra Following Griffin: A Design History of Australia's National Capital to be published by the National Archives, died last September.
