Making architectural identity: the architecture of John Andrews (ARC Discovery Project DP120100341 administered through The University of Melbourne) (2012–2014)

Abstract:
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.
