Fresh Eyes: Reimagining Robin Boyd’s Walsh Street Past Event
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 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.
Presented as a part of Melbourne Design Week, this exhibition displays Boyd’s ‘Walsh Street’ through the lens of some of our best contemporary architecture photographers.
The Robin Boyd Foundation has asked these Melbourne photographers to look at this iconic home with FRESH EYES.
