Additional Notes This sketch was made prior to the commencement of construction of the University of Queensland St. Lucia Campus in 1937. The Great Court complex depicted was built over a forty year period from 1937 to 1979, mostly in accordance with the original design proposal of Hennessy, Hennessy & Co., though other parts of their plan were never completed. Jack Francis Hennessy is credited as having created the plan. Hennessy, Hennessy & Co. were prominent Australian architects with offices in several major cities.
