Marion Mahony Griffin Architect: feisty true believer and free spirit

a talk by Rosemarie Willett, B.Arch. M.B.Env.

Rosemarie’s presentation will engage with Marion as a person, architect and outstanding communicator of architectural ideas. A registered architect in Sydney, Rosemarie came to Canberra in 1983 to work on Parliament House for Mitchell Giurgola and Thorp. In undertaking extensive research on the planning of Canberra, she resurrected her dormant passion for the Griffins’ creative abilities and their connection with the ideas of Louis Sullivan.
