ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

Robin Boyd was an Australian architect, writer, teacher and social commentator and a leader in Melbourne’s Modern Architecture movement. He was a visionary in urban design and outspoken on the ‘Australian Identity’.

Boyd House II or ‘Walsh Street’, the house Robin Boyd designed for his own family in 1957, is his most well-known work and a stone’s throw from Melbourne Botanic Gardens.

It has been extensively published both nationally and internationally as an exemplar of modernist Australian architecture and a house that continues to influence architectural thinking. It is now the home of the Robin Boyd Foundation.

Over the past two years we’ve invited 18 leading architectural photographers to Walsh Street with an open creative brief. The result showcases their talents  and offers new and diverse perspectives on this iconic piece of Australian heritage.

Presented as a part of Melbourne Design Week, and in conjunction with Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne. Curated by Kennedy Nolan and Sophie Gannon Gallery.
