The Foundation

 

The Robin Boyd Foundation continues the work and spirit of Robin Boyd through an active, innovative and ongoing series of public learning programs developed to increase individual and community awareness, understanding and participation in design.

 

 

The Foundation aims to deepen understanding of the benefits of design through:

  1. Design Awareness
  2. Design Literacy
  3. Design Advocacy

The Foundation has been established in conjunction with Robin Boyd’s family. It is a separate legal entity, a registered charity with its own constitution, with members representing the Boyd family, the Royal Australian Institute of Architects (Victoria Chapter), the three faculties of architecture at University of Melbourne, Deakin University and RMIT University, and others with expertise, interest and commitment to the advancement of design.

The Robin Boyd Foundation was established in January 2005. The late Hon. Gough Whitlam was the Founding Patron of the Foundation.

The Robin Boyd Foundation operates from Walsh Street, the South Yarra house which Boyd designed for himself and his family in 1958.

The Robin Boyd Foundation is a ‘not-for-profit’ Company Limited by Guarantee and is a registered Tax Deductible Gift Recipient. Donations over $2.00 are tax deductible.
