Walsh Street Archive Exhibition Tour – Thu 4 Aug, 11am

Thu August 4th @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

$25.00 – $45.00

Experience ‘Walsh Street’, the house Boyd designed for his own family in 1957, and his most well-known work. 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.

Launch of the Walsh Street Archive – special exhibition

Over the past seven years, the Walsh Street Archive has been catalogued, researched and digitised by a team of Robin Boyd Foundation volunteers. In celebration of the archive’s launch online through Victorian Collections, the Foundation will welcome tour attendees to a curated exhibition of collection highlights.

Bring your smartphone to explore the collection via a self-guided QR code tour. You wil be provided with an exhibition floor plan upon arrival which will list all the specific items on display.

Morning Tour – Thursday 4 August 2022

11.00am – 12.30pm

The Tour begins promptly on the hour with a talk about Robin Boyd and his lasting influence, along with an insight into the design of the Walsh Street house. Guests are then free to explore the archive exhibition within the 1.5-hour session.
