Beyond architecture : Marion Mahony and Walter Burley Griffin : America, Australia, India by Anne Watson( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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"--Jacket

Making magic : the Marion Mahony Griffin story by Glenda Korporaal( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

She was the American woman who changed Australian history. She broke through barriers for women in architecture and spent 15 years working for Chicago architect Frank Lloyd Wright, in the formative years of the Prairie School of Architecture. Then she teamed up with Walter Burley Griffin working with him in winning the design contest for the new Australian capital city, Canberra. She was an architect, artist, environmentalist, social observer and community builder, yet her work has been constantly overshadowed by the famous men in her life. The first biography of Marion Mahony Griffin in her own right, 'Making magic' tells Marion's story. It dates back to the days of Abraham Lincoln who was friends with her grandparents as a travelling lawyer in Illinois. It follows the story of her life over three continents - America, Australia and India. And her love affair with her husband which produced such historic results. A woman with a fierce sense of idealism and a passion for nature, Marion always had a mind of her own. She developed fine artistic and architectural skills which helped to make Wright and then Griffin famous. A woman in a man's world, she made history with her pioneering role as a female architect. Her creative work was sheer magic. Faced with her own challenges, she drew on her energy and creativity to refashion her role in a new country. She was instrumental in setting up a unique community in the Sydney suburb of Castlecrag

Marion Mahony reconsidered by Marion Mahony Griffin( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marion Mahony Griffin (1871 -- 1961) was an American architect and artist, one of the first licensed female architects in the world, designer for Frank Lloyd Wrights Chicago studio, and an original member of the Prairie School of architecture. Largely heralded for her exquisite presentation drawings for both Wright and her husband, Walter Burley Griffin, Mahony was an adventurous designer in her own right, whose independent and highly original work attracted attention at a moment when architectural drawing and graphic illustration were becoming integral to the design process. This book examines new research into Mahonys life and paints a vivid portrait of a womans place among the lives and productions of some of our most noted American architects. The essays included take us on an ambitious journey from Mahonys origins in the Chicago suburbs, through her years as Wrights right-hand woman and her bohemian life with her husband in Australia whose new capital city, Canberra, she helped to plan up until her golden years in the middle of the twentieth century. Filled with richly detailed analyses of Mahonys works and including and populated by an international cast of characters, Marion Mahony Reconsidered greatly expands our knowledge of this talented, complex, and enigmatic modern architect
