The National Library of Australia has kindly offered a special viewing of the Nicholls Collection to members of the Walter Burley Griffin Society in the afternoon of Friday 4 May.
The Nicholls Collection acquired by the Library in early 2006 has over 3,300 items of astonishing scope and complexity. The Library has conserved Marion Mahony Griffin’s drawings on silk, and has been methodically cataloguing the entire collection, which is expected to be completed in April 2007. Already much has been digitised and can be viewed on the Library’s website.
Between 12.30pm to 4.30pm on 4 May, the Library will give members and friends of the Walter Burley Griffin Society a rare opportunity to see the Griffins’ drafting and architectural skills in sketches, presentation drawings, correspondence, renderings and photographs of their works. View on 4th floor.
