Heide’s exhibition Robin Boyd: Design Legend promises to be a comprehensive examination of the work of one of Australia’s most important and influential architectural voices. Running from August 3 to October 27, the exhibition examines Boyd’s humanist design philosophy and work in other disciplines, including furniture and exhibition design, and publishing and broadcasting.
A highlight of the exhibition is a detailed look at ten of the architect’s remarkable residential works, including the influential House of Tomorrow (1949), Boyd’s own house in Walsh Street, South Yarra (1958), and the renowned Featherston house in Ivanhoe (1967-9), designed for the family of furniture designer Grant Featherston, who still occupy the property.
On Saturday August 10 from 11am, senior curator Kendrah Morgan will lead a tour of the exhibition, followed by morning tea on the terrace of Heide II.
The exhibition is free with museum entry ($10 to $12), and included as part of the morning tea package, which is $35 for adults, $30 for concession holders and $25 for members.
