Walter Burley Griffin and his partner Marion Mahony Griffin were two American Chicago based architects of the Prairie School. Both architects worked for Frank Loyd Wright for some years. Together, they won the tender to design Canberra, ACT. In Melbourne, 1915, they designed The Mount Eagle subdivision, now Eaglemont. The street planning followed the undulation of the land and incorporated stone walls and private parkland - a garden design. This is all four communal spaces of the Griffin's subdivision as they are today.
