Author Andrew Dodd worked on this biography of architect John James Clark as the Redmond Barry Fellow in 2009.
Aged just 19 when he designed the Melbourne Treasury, Clark went on to design Melbourne’s Government House, City Baths and Royal Mint, along with many other iconic Australian buildings.
This fascinating biography reveals the inspiration and drama of a man described as Australia’s greatest architect, and contains original plans, elevations and previously unpublished sketches from Library collections.
