Francis Greenway Architect

Broadbent, James; Joy Hughes


Sold Out

Francis Greenway (1777-1837) was Australia’s first Government Architect. A convicted forger, he was appointed Acting Civil Architect by Governor Macquarie in 1816. For seven years he realised the Governor’s schemes for public works, helping to raise New South Wales from a convict outpost to a proud colony. The relationship ended acrimoniously, but Greenway continued his private practice, designing houses and stores for prosperous Sydney merchants. Through his buildings such as St Matthew’s Church, Windsor, St James’s Church, Sydney and the Hyde Park Barracks, Greenway has become the most respected and widely known of New South Wales’s early colonial architects. This is the first comprehensive publication of Greenway’s life and architecture. Architecture 112 p. : ill. (some col.), facsims., plans ; 21 x 27 cm. #0821 Greenway, Francis, 1777-1837. | Architecture, Colonial — New South Wales. | Architecture — New South Wales — History — 19th century.
