If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.

ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
Architect, artist, environmentalist, social observer, community builder and loyal wife, Marion Mahony Griffin was a woman who changed history. The second woman to graduate with an architecture degree from MIT and the first woman in America to become a licensed architect, Mahony was a woman in a man's world, ahead of her time, energetic and creative, yet her role was overshadowed by the men in her life.
She was Frank Lloyd Wright's first professional employee, working with him for more than a decade. Then she teamed up with fellow Chicago architect Walter Burley Griffin, her drawings playing a crucial role in helpin him to win the prize for the design of the Australian federal capital, Canberra. Her artistic work was sheer magic.
"Making Magic" aims to tell Marion's story, a story which spans three continents, and puts the case for her recognition as an important figure who emerged from Chicago's Prairie School of Architecture.
