Robin Boyd Foundation

Iconic Modernist House Museum

The Robin Boyd Foundation is the custodian of the legacy of Australian modernist architect, author, critic, and public educator Robin Boyd and the iconic Walsh Street house he designed, built and inhabited.

We are committed to advocating Boyd’s belief that good design can improve people’s lives and our world. Our Guided Tours provide public access to Walsh Street, an exemplar of modernist residential architecture. The Foundation is also known for its Public Programs and Digital Engagement that activates community awareness, amplify voices and increase Australian architecture and design participation. 

The Foundation’s work is supported by the Boyd CirclePartnersDonorsFriends, and our vital volunteers.
