Heidelberg Historical Society member Steven Barlow grew up in the shadow of the Essendon City Council's incinerator, one of a dozen curious such buildings designed by Walter Burley Griffin. He has maintained a life long interest in the Griffins and in architectural history.
Steven will give an illustrated talk on the breadth of the work of Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahony Griffin, including that in Heidelberg, and the influences on their remarkable lives and beliefs at the upcoming meeting of the Heidelberg Historical Society, 13 December 2016 at the Uniting Church Community Centre, Ivanhoe.
