The St Louis Pruitt-Igoe public housing development was designed by modernist architect Minoru Yamasaki (of famed NYC Twin Towers design ). Replacing 19th century tenements which had dilapidated to slums, the 57 acre/ 23.5 hectare plan included green spaces, paths, and playgrounds designed around 33 11-storey buildings. Yet it was all pulled down by 1976. Come to  @dadofilmsociety screening of this documentary at #WalshStreet on Tuesday to find out why this social housing scheme was doomed to fail almost from the start.

#Homelessness is defined as a loss of a sense of security, stability, privacy or safety, or the ability to control your living space. Only 7% of Australia's homeless are sleeping rough. Youth and the elderly are most at risk from lack of housing, too high rents, no support for first time home buyers and, frankly, lack of awareness of what actually causes a #homelessstate It's #HomelessWeek , and @boyfoundation will be doing more in the future to further discussions and awareness about  #affordablehousing , #mediumdensity , #safehousing , #rentcontrol We want to help and join up thinking and action with government, private and social sectors to see how we can demand new approaches like Finland's #HousingFirst policies, supporting more @nightingale housing ( @breathearchitecture ) medium density builds, and better designed, humanist social housing like #AthertonGardens ( @birddelacoeurarchitects + @McCabe_Architects 2012 ) #DoYourBit to help and learn more about why every person deserves a home. https://everybodyshome.com.au/about/. . Ask the new Federal Minister for Homelessness @lukehowarth_mp to create a national housing plan to serve those most in need of a #roofovertheirhead #endinghomelessnesstogether #HW2019 #HomelessAdvocate #homelessnessaustralia #homelessnessawareness #RemoveTheStigma #YouthOffTheStreets

Taking on the spirit of Boyd as a design provocateur deeply committed to affordable housing, Wainwright will discuss 'Form Follows Finance: The Changing Faces of Housing' and examine the relentless financialisation of housing and what effect this is having on our cities today. . . . #robinboyd100 #oliverwainwright #talk @ollywainwright @guardian #architecture #affordablehousing #ngv #melbournedesignweek

As part of the Robin Boyd Centenary of Design programs, the Robin Boyd Foundation has partnered with @auspost to create a commemorative stamp issue that marks 100 years since the birth of Robin Boyd, an icon of Australian architecture. The stamp designed by Jo Muré of the Australia Post Design Studio notes his short life span with the words Robin Boyd: 1919–71 and features a photograph (taken by Darren Bradley @modarchitecture ) of his iconic, midcentury modernist Walsh Street house, known as Boyd House II, which Boyd designed in 1957 in Melbourne. Australia Post consulted with the Foundation and board members Amy Boyd (Boyd’s granddaughter ) and Boyd expert Professor Philip Goad to ensure that the stamp and its accompanying maxicard and sheetlet pack reflected the historical and continuing legacy of the architect and his influence in modern commentary about Australian design and the built environment. The centenary stamp will be available to buy from tomorrow and can be purchased from the AusPost website.
