Award-winning architect, Dr Enrico Taglietti, describes the four schools he designed -- Latham, Flynn, Giralang and Gowrie primary schools -- in the Australian Capital Territory, Australia. In this interview, Dr Taglietti refers to the defining influence of Latham, Flynn and Giralang in terms of the evolution of an educational philosophy during the 1970s. Gowrie, which came later, is seen as an important finality to the progression.

Both Fynn and Giralang have been nominated for heritage listing.

Dr Taglitti was born in Italy and migrated to Canberra in the 1950s. He won the Royal Architects Institute of Australia (RAIA) Gold Medal in 2007 for his contribution to Australian architecture.
