Walter Burley Griffin in America combines the richly detailed photographs of Mati Maldre and extensive research of Paul Kruty to provide the first complete visual record ever published of Griffin’s surviving American work. The volume, accessible to the general reader and indispensable to historians of architecture, includes nearly 200 photographs of structures and landscapes designed by Griffin. Maldre’s photographs are complemented by his introduction, an autobiographical essay in which he discusses his objectives and photographic techniques. In addition to the text and the photographs of sixty-five buildings and landscapes, the volume includes a chronological catalog of standing buildings, a list of demolished works, a location guide, and a selected bibliography.

The Chicago Bungalow 

Photographs by Mati Maldre

Edited by Dominic Pacyga and Charles Shanabruch

Arcadia Publishing for the Chicago Architecture Foundation

52 Photographs (27 color), 2001

This book is a companion piece to an exhibition created by the Chicago Architecture Foundation to the Legacy of the Chicago Bungalow. Both the book and the exhibition interpret the architecture of the bungalow and its social history. It is part of the Chicago Architecture Foundation’s ongoing work of celebrating and educating the public about the city’s great architectural tradition. The Chicago Bungalow is a part of the city’s housing infrastructure and an architectural treasure that has remained too little known and appreciated. It is hoped that this book and exhibition will help focus attention to this long-ignored treasure of Chicago’s architectural legacy.

The Griffins in Australia and India

Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahony Griffin were Australia’s first internationally significant architects. In Australia, their wider achievements have been largely overshadowed by local fame as the original design planners of the national capital, Canberra. Less well-known are Griffin’s designs for several towns, suburban estates, civic and commercial buildings, cinemas, a university residential college, low-cost dwellings, furniture, and landscapes. The Griffins are also important to Australia because their organic architecture, often submerged in native foliage, or seemingly rooted in the land – defines them as the originators of our contemporary regard for native landscape as an expression of national identity. Profusely illustrated with photographs by Mati Maldre, plans, and drawings, The Griffins in Australia and India not only offers an evaluative context for the Griffin’s oeuvre, but records for the first time and with complete authority all of the Griffins’ known projects in Australia and India.
