Boyd Circle

Home / Boyd Circle

We look forward to welcoming additional practices to participate in The Boyd Circle. A group of AIA award-winning and shortlisted architecture practices who are leading voices in the industry.

Boyd Circle Founding Group left to right: Matt Gibson (Matt Gibson Architecture & Design), Rachel Nolan (Kennedy Nolan), Rob McBride (McBride Charles Ryan), Astrid Jenkin (NH Architecture), Patrick Kennedy (Kennedy Nolan), Hamish Lyon (NH Architecture), Louise Wright (Baracco + Wright Architects) John Wardle (John Wardle Architects), Debbie Ryan (McBride Charles Ryan), Mel Bright (MAKE Architecture) Mauro Baracco (Baracco + Wright Architects)

The initiative brings together the best design minds to contribute to the core mission of the Foundation, to educate the public on why design matters. The group will curate a bold new program of talks, open days and interactive events that promote inclusive discussion and active public participation in design.

The group will engage closely with the Robin Boyd Foundation, and assist in raising awareness both in the architecture and wider community.

Participating practices will nominate two named representatives. The practice will be listed on the Robin Boyd Foundation Website.
