That year he conducted an international competition to design the capital, which was awarded the Chicago architect Walter Burley Griffin in 1912. The official appointment and commencement of construction of Canberra took place on 12 March 1913. Appointment of Canberra, March 12, 1913 After a degree of indecision of the authorities regarding the plan and its implementation, Griffin was invited to Australia in 1913 to oversee construction. 67 His plan involved significant landscaping and a large body of water.Bureaucracy delayed the work. In 1916 the failure of a Royal Commission established its authority to implement the plan had been usurped by some officers. Prime Minister Billy Hughes removed Griffin from his post in late 1921 . Corey Ribotsky Griffin then had revised its plan, monitor the work in the land of the main avenues and established planting Glenloch Cork.The carillon in Aspen Island in Lake Burley Griffin, Canberra, celebrates the 50th anniversary of Australia’s national capital after it was removed Griffin has set up the Federal Capital Advisory Committee (Council for the Federal Capital), responsible for corporate advisory advise the Government on the construction. Its president, John Sulman, applied the ideas of the garden city movement Griffin plan. In 1925 the committee was replaced by the Federal Capital Commission (Commission for the Federal Capital). their role was preparing to Canberra to receive the Federal Parliament and public services from Melbourne. The Federal Government officially moved to the Australian Capital Territory from Melbourne at the formal opening of Parliament on May 9, 1927 . One of the first acts of the new parliament was the repeal of Prohibition.At first some utilities followed in Melbourne and headed towards the capital gradually over several years. 1938 to 1957, the National Capital Planning and Development Committee (Planning and Development Committee of the National Capital by NCPDC its acronym in English) continued to plan further expansion of Canberra, but without executive power. Decisions were made regarding the development of the city without consulting the committee. It was during this time that he built the Australian War Memorial (Memorial Australian War), which opened in 1941. However, financial difficulties at work and limited growth in the city and its development was sporadic until end of the Second World War.Three of the best known landmarks of Canberra: Lake Burley Griffin (foreground) Old Parliament and the current after the war there were shortages of housing and offices in Canberra, so that was conducted a hearing in the Senate in 1954 to meet their development needs. It concluded that it should form a single body with executive planning. Accordingly, the NCPDC was replaced by the National Capital Development Commission (Commission of National Capital Development, NCDC by its initials in English) in 1957. The NCDC oversaw construction of Lake Burley Griffin and the Parliamentary Triangle completion in 1964.On average, the population of Canberra rose more than 50 every five years between and 1975. For the new residents the NCDC oversaw the delivery of new residential land through the creation of new urban centers: Woden, opened in 1964 and Belconnen, opened in 1966, Weston Creek and Tuggeranong in 1969 in 1973. He built a new National Library in the Parliamentary Triangle, then the Supreme Court of Australia, National Gallery and the new parliament in 1988. That same year he dissolved the NCDC, spending most of his staff to work in the newly established Government of the Australian Capital Territory and the new National Capital Authority, which was established to supercisar federal interest in the development of the capital. Canberra has continued to grow with the release of more residential land in Gungahlin in the 1990s.
