Robin Boyd is arguably Australia’s most influential architect. Through his writings,
he inspired the general community; through his architecture he was a leader in
his profession. His own designs exceeded the expectations of his time; his
design approach challenged his contemporaries and continues to inspire
architects today.

Boyd advocated for good design. He promoted an innovative use of space,
materials and structure to create a poetic solution that never failed to delight.

This is a special opportunity to experience Boyd’s design legacy and appreciate
for yourself its continuing relevance to the way we live today.
