WHAT’S ON

The Robin Boyd Foundation delivers a broad range of public programs that promote good design and explore the enduring legacy of Robin Boyd.

Our Guided Tours welcome visitors to explore Walsh Street, Robin and Patricia Boyd’s iconic modernist home and learn about Robin’s work as an architect, author, critic, and public educator. The Design Matters series features talks from local and visiting architects, designers and academics presenting on contemporary and historical design discourse. Our DADo Film Society screens a curated roster of films on architecture and design in the Walsh Street living room. During autumn and spring, our Sunset Cocktail tours offer the unique opportunity to experience the residence after hours. Open Days give the public access to distinct historic and contemporary architectural projects.
