RBF-AIA Awards Open Day 2019

The Australian Institute of Architects recognise the best buildings completed in the preceding year in their annual awards program. The Robin Boyd Foundation, in co-operation with the awarded and commended architectural and design practices and owners of these special residences, are pleased to host these self-guided tours of outstanding awarded and shortlisted projects in Victoria.

The RBF-AIA Awards Open Days also complement the Foundation’s mission to further the legacy of Robin Boyd by offering a platform to critically explore and enhance the power of architecture and design to reflect and shape Australian identity.
