Robin Boyd Walsh Street Sofa - the fabric is a unique design created specifically for the Heide Moma exhibition. The strong graphics on the black background was influenced by the Boyd roof lines from some of his homes. Garry Emery, renowned graphic designer, was invited by K5 to create the design. He bought his design to life carrying out the screen print at the studio of Space Furniture. The exhibition runs until late October. .

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.

Car read series #1 I spend a ridiculous amount of time sitting in the car reading. It’s a pastime I learned to love when the kids were babies and I’d drive around for ages trying to get them to sleep. When they’d finally nod off, I’d soak up the peace and quiet, reading whatever I had on hand. It was my sanity time. Anyway, I digress! This is my latest #carread and I’d go so far as to say it’s compulsory reading for any self respecting mid-century modern enthusiast. It’s hard to believe this book was first published in 1960—Robin Boyd’s understanding of Australian design is unparalleled and he really was ahead of his time. I wonder what he’d have to say about the state of design and architecture in this country today? . . . . . #carreadseries #books #reading #readingsbooks #robinboyd #robinboyd100 #robinboydfoundation #theaustralianugliness #midcenturymodern #architecture

On Friday 22 March, the Foundation in partnership with Melbourne Design Week, an initiative of the Victorian Government in collaboration with the @ngvmelbourne and @institute_architects_aus is presenting a Robin Boyd Centenary address given by Oliver Wainwright, the architect and design critic of the Guardian. 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.

In a celebration of Robin Boyd’s legacy 100 years after his birth, @jolson_architecture are reflecting on their renovation project ‘Bridging Boyd.’ Keep an eye on their page this week as they share their story on the significant renovation of Boyd’s Richardson House undertaken by Jolson. The original Richardson House was designed between 1953 & 1955 by Robin Boyd during the period of his partnership with Grounds and Romberg. This house takes the form of a wedge, which contains all living areas, including an enclosed outdoor terrace that occupied the volume above the easement. Boyd allowed the limitations of the site to become the catalyst for an extraordinary design solution. The elevations are strongly geometric, with dominant elliptical bridge trusses on each of the outside walls supporting the house, with simple portal frame construction and a flat roof. . . . #robinboyd100 #midcenturymodern #architecture #modernistarchitecture #robinboyd #groundsrombergboyd

Happy 100th Birthday to Robin Boyd! Robin Boyd CBE (1919-1971 ) is arguably the most influential architect there has been in Australia. Combined with his visionary urban design and leadership in Melbourne’s Modern Architecture movement, Boyd was a spokesperson, an author and a public educator who encouraged people to reassess and innovate, and extend their thinking and expectations beyond ‘the known’ and ‘the given’. To celebrate the centenary of Robin Boyd’s birth, the Foundation and a range of Victorian institutions have come together to host a programme of exhibitions and talks throughout 2019 in honour of his life’s work! We will be announcing details in due course. . . #robinboyd #robinboyd100 #centenary #birthday #modernistarchitecture #australianidentity #australianugliness #australianarchitecture #melbourne #midcenturymodern
