Making architectural identity: the architecture of John Andrews (ARC Discovery Project DP120100341 administered through The University of Melbourne) (2012–2014)
John Andrews is unique among Australian architects for having had major impact in both his homeland and
in North America. His success in Canada and the US in large institutional and urban projects in the 1960s
came before a series of key projects particularly in Canberra built his reputation in Australia. This project will
examine Andrews¿s work, its contexts, influence, and consequences, for the first time from both North
American and Australian perspectives. It will develop knowledge on the architecture of a poorly understood
transitional period; develop insights into how claims are made on architecture in the construction of national
identity; and lead to new understanding of the contemporary globalization of architecture.
