Harris, Eleri: Utopian Canberra that wasn’t

Harris, Eleri

The utopian city that wasn’t: how two American architects won a competition to design Australia’s capital in 1912‘, Reform, 25 September 2014

Comicbook version of the story of Canberra from 1912 to now. Notes the impact of World War I on the realisation of the Griffins’ vision but could have mentioned the work of the National Capital Development Commission in the 1950s and 1960s which was not Griffinesque but was notable in its own way.
