Abstract :
Walter Burley Griffin is not remembered as a historic preservationist, but his involvement in a campaign to save a 19th-c. convict-built building in Sydney [Hyde Park Barracks, designed by the convict architect Francis Greenway] in the 1930s reveals a deep respect for the inherited built landscape. Griffin's contribution, while modest, is important because it illustrates an important juncture in the evolution of the historic preservation movement in Australia. These efforts can be situated within his broader socio-architectural philosophy, and represent a neglected dimension in the career of one of the major figures of 20th-c. architecture, landscape architecture, and urban planning. ;
