Books by Martin, Lewis E

Built for Us: The Work of Government and Colonial Architects, 1860s to 1960s

ISBN: 978 1 877276 64 4

Surrounding us in our everyday lives are public buildings we all relate to: post offices, state houses, schools, railway stations, courthouses, office buildings, police stations. Many of these buildings were designed by six men, who held the post of Colonial or Government Architect from the 1860s to 1960s. This book brings together all of their surviving public works, with drawings illustrating the distinctive style of design and particular brilliance of each.
