Your House and Mine
For our final DADo session, join us for a special presentation of Your House and Mine, a film made in Melbourne in 1954 directed by Peter McIntyre and written by Robin Boyd himself. We are very excited to welcome Peter McIntyre to be our guest speaker for the night.
With a career stretching over more than seventy years, Peter McIntyre AO is one of Australia’s most influential architects. Mentored and championed by Robin Boyd, whom he worked with to make Your House and Mine, McIntyre worked for Boyd as a draughtsman and designer for the Royal Victorian Institute of Architects Small Homes Service, before starting his own practice, McIntyre Partnership, at the age of 23.
