Architecture Bus Tour: Robin Boyd

hero

All architecture and design enthusiasts are invited to join our celebration of the 100th anniversary of the birth of one of Australia’s most influential architects, Robin Boyd. Join DESIGN Canberra's specialists on an exciting guided architecture bus tour and visit Boyd’s most celebrated works in Canberra.

Robin Boyd (1919-1971), born and educated in Melbourne, was a distinguished architect, writer and social commentator and throughout the 1940s and 1950s was Australia’s leading proponent of the modern movement. Boyd held a lifelong interest in modern architecture tempered by regional concerns. His early work employed structuralist solutions to overcome what he considered to be the deficiencies of most housing of the period and he was a leading practitioner of the post-war Melbourne regional style. The suburban house was often the focus of Boyd’s efforts, both in design and writing; unfortunately he enjoyed relatively few opportunities to design major buildings.
