Abstract:

This is the story of John Andrews, world-famous Australian architect. In the mid-1960s, when only 29, Andrews was commissioned to design Scarborough College at Toronto University. One of the world's first 'megastructures', it was an important experiment in urban and educational planning. Andrews also designed the Canadian National Tower in Toronto, which was the tallest freestanding structure in the world at the time it was built. Another of Andrews' major designs is the Miami Seaport Passenger Terminal. Built in 1970, its design was unprecedented among shipping berths worldwide. In Australia, Andrews designed the Cameron Offices in Canberra - two city blocks in length and connecting a residential area to a shopping area, and also the American Express Tower in Sydney; combining stainless steel with a plastic sunshading system, its exterior takes a on a bold yet pragmatic style. This film is a tribute to Andrews' genius - his buildings are all remarkable examples of contemporary architecture.
