Walter Burley GriffinAN open day to showcase the architectural union of Walter Burley Griffin and his wife Marion Mahoney Griffin has been co-ordinated for Sunday December 6 in Melbourne.
 
Open for inspection will be the Langi Flats building at the northeast corner of Toorak and Lansell roads, in Toorak, Beament Residence in Kew and the Essendon Incinerator, which is actually in Moonee Ponds. These projects were built between 1924 and 1930.
 
Three homes around Heidelberg will also be on display, including the Roy Lippincott Residence, developed in 1917, Pholiota Griffin Residence (1922) and the Vaughan Griffin Residence (1924). 

The Robin Boyd Foundation, in association with the Sidney Myer Fund, is co-ordinating the “Griffin’s Melbourne” self guided tour. Attendants have the option of a lunch at the University of Melbourne’s Newman College, which will also be open for inspection.
