Walter Burley Griffin

Bibliodyssey, the beautiful blog of rare finds online has a post about Walter Burley Griffin who i swear built an art deco incinerator on Kedzie near 45th st.. gonna go look...

Walter Burley Griffin (1876-1937) was a Chicago architect with a background in landscape design. He is closely associated with the Prairie School, a uniquely American style of architecture that favoured horizontal lines (reflecting prairies) and whose most famous practitioner was Frank Lloyd Wright.

check out his wife Marion Mahoney Griffin here:


her memoir was recently published digitally by the Art Institute of Chicago.

I forget exactly where in the manuscript but there are photographs of art deco incinerators built in Lucknow, India.
