    Hi.
    I have noticed a mistake on the following web page (http://www.sydneyarchitecture.com/ARCH/ARCH-Griffin%20.htm) of yours. It clearly claims that Walter Griffin invented or was the first ever to use re-inforced concrete. As quoted: “Between 1901 and 1913, Walter Burley Griffin designed some 130 houses, landscapes and buildings. He is now credited with developing the L-shaped floor plan (which Frank Lloyd Wright took credit), the carport (which did not see common use until the 1950s), and the first use of reinforced concrete.” This statement is very missleading even if it is meant only that he were the first to use it in Australia, but thats not what is says. Please correct the wording.
    Thanks,
    Clive Overett
