The A. recalls the career of the Sydney-based architect-planner W. Bunning (1912-77). He provides an overview oh his particular brand of modernist thought, his central planning ideas, and his physical planning work, with special reference to a disastrous redevelopment scheme. The nature and scope of W. Bunning's professional life represent a virtual microcosm of the uneven course of planning in Australia in the postwar years. The A. demonstrates how a biographical approach to planning history can illuminate the origins, meanings, hopes, and outcomes of modernist planning in the urban area
