Timeline

Chronology of Sydney Architecture 1945-1975

Douglas Snelling's career in Sydney began in 1945 and faded after the early 1970s (he retired to Hawaii in 1976). During those three decades, he was recognised as one of the city's most innovative architects and designers.

Snelling's biographer, Davina Jackson, assembled a timeline of achievements by Sydney's other leading architects of that period – claryifying their projects, business affiliations and ages each year. (Ages are useful for social historians to help interpret the political dynamics among architects competing for projects, status and historical significance. Some ages have been calculated from records with the New South Wales Board of Architects, which had a practice of 'rounding off' birth dates to 1 January of the year after the actual birthdate. This explains why Douglas Snelling's birthdate sometimes has been published as 1917 not 1916.)

This chronology (substantial but not complete) uses original information obtained from the architects and/or their families, books and papers at state and academic libraries and the archives of architectural institutions, and scholars of Sydney's architectural history.

1945

SYDNEY ANCHER (41) won the NSW RAIA’s Sulman Medal for his Ancher house I (aka Poyntzfield) at Lot 90, 3 Maytone Road, Killara. He had been practising as an architect in Sydney since the late 1930s – interrupted by war service in the Middle East – after graduating from Sydney Technical College and travelling to Europe.

AARON BOLOT (45) continued his successful pre-war practice in Sydney. Born in Brisbane in 1900, he had worked for HOLLISHED and GAILEY and, after moving to Sydney in the early 1930s, assisted WALTER BURLEY GRIFFIN on the Pyrmont and Willoughby incinerators. As an independent practitioner from the late 1930s, he specialised in theatres and apartment buildings with works including Dorchester House, 149 Macquarie Street (1936); the Randwick Ritz, Hoyts Goulburn and the Wyong Astra (1937); Wentworth Towers, with E.C. PITT (1938); Ashdown, Elizabeth Bay Road, Elizabeth Bay (1938) Gosford Regal Theatre (1938) the New Melba Theatre, Bourke Street, Melbourne (1938); Hensley Hall, 3 Bellevue Road, Bellevue Hill (1939); Wests Theatre, Nowra (1941), and a residence at Beauty Point (1942)

HUGH BUHRICH (34) and EVA BUHRICH (30) arrived in Sydney from Germany before World War II and began practising in Sydney and Canberra as architectural designers. According to a 2003 M.Arch research report by Rebecca Hawcroft (University of Sydney), they had designed two unbuilt houses in 1941 – the Buhrich residence, 315 Edinburgh Road, Castlecrag, and the Catheson house, Bulwark, Castlecrag. After the war, Hugh (born in Hamburg, educated in Munich and formerly apprenticed to Hans Poelzig in Berlin) set up a design practice (houses, furniture and interiors), while Eva began a career in architectural writing and editing.

WALTER BUNNING (33) published Homes in the Sun, a manifesto for the future of Australia’s built environment, particularly new housing in the suburbs. It included novel concepts for climate and sun-responsive design. He was also appointed Chair of the NSW Government’s Town and Country Planning Advisory Committee. During the war, he had been working as executive officer for the Commonwealth Housing Commission, for which he produced a report on the state of housing in Australia. In this significant document for post-war planning policies, he called for ‘citizens to plan their own particular needs and to see that they become a reality’. Before the war, Brisbane-born Bunning had studied architecture at Sydney Technical College, graduating in 1936, then won a NSW Board of Architects Travelling Scholarship. In the late 1930s, he worked for architect H. RUSKIN ROWE, then the Allied Works Council on defence and camouflage projects. He designed numerous houses and several town planning schemes, including a scheme to develop the St Mary’s munitions dump as a town centre.

SAMUEL LIPSON (44) and PETER KAAD (47), of LIPSON & KAAD, were engaged by the Commonwealth Government to design low-cost public housing for the Housing Commission and to document new branches of the Commonwealth Bank. Lipson was born in Glasgow, and worked for the Commonwealth Architect 1925-32, then merged his sole practice with Kaad in1936. Kaad had worked with with ROSS & ROWE and SYDNEY WARDEN on banks and hotels. Their pre-war buildings included the California Café in Darlinghurst (1934); the Normandie café, 7 Elizabeth Street (1935); the car repair headquarters of Hastings Deering Service, off William Street, East Sydney (1937, featuring a world-patented double-helix ramp); the Hoffnung warehouse, Clarence Street (1938); the Truth & Sportsman newspaper buildings in Sydney and Melbourne; the Stack & Co showrooms and service station corner York and William Streets; the Packard service building in Yurong Street, and the Sea Breeze Hotel at Tom Ugly’s Point.

HANS PETER OSER (31) was registered by the NSW Board of Architects after several attempts during the late war. His application was signed by WALTER BUNNING and KENNETH MCCONNEL. He had graduated from the University of Vienna in 1936, worked briedly for Professor Behrens and Hoffman and Haerdtl in Vienna, been naturalised as a British subject and arrived in Australia in 1938. After arriving, he worked for J.D. MOORE & DOWLING, PREVOST & ASSOCIATES, CRANE & SCOTT, MALLEYS and in private practice.
