Central place in birth of Australia's modern architecture

 

The importance of the Fishwick house is not just because of its outstanding design and heritage qualities; in Australia it has emerged as the Griffin building most often selected to represent his work.

 

As explained in the Prominence and Significance section, this is because it vividly demonstrates Griffin's inventiveness and creativity and has become the prime vehicle for the introduction of his ideas and principles on what constitutes "good" architecture, design and landscaping.

 

That section also outlines not only how Griffin is now widely accepted as an architectural pioneer or prophet, but also how the house has emerged as the symbol for the birth of modern architecture in Australia.
