Melbourne School of Design has released a timelapse video of the creation of a full-scale replica of Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahoney’s tiny 1920s Eaglemont home, Pholiota — as part of Cultural Collisions at the 2016 Melbourne Festival. The original house was constructed using the Knitlock system of interlocking bricks, invented and patented by the couple.
The replica was built by Masters of Architecture students led by Philip Goad, Chair of Architecture and Redmond Barry Distinguished Professor. It was accompanied by new designs for a contemporary version.
Cultural Collisions and Pholiota Unlocked were supported by Lovell Chen.
