Marriott House, Flinders, 1954.


Coinciding with the fortieth anniversary of his death in 1971, this specially developed exhibition pays homage to Robin Boyd and his
award-winning houses and apartments designed and built at Frankston and on the Mornington Peninsula.

Robin Boyd (1919-1971) was one of Australia’s most highly regarded architects, writers and critics. In his influential post-war architectural projects,
public talks and writing on architecture such as Australia’s Home, Living in Australia and The Australian Ugliness, Boyd consistently advocated good design
as a parallel to our modern way of life. His architecture and innovative ideas continue to both excite and inspire in the contemporary Australian architectural landscape.

Featured houses in the exhibition include: The Marriott House, Flinders 1954, The Myer House 'Pekican', Mt Eliza 1956, Shelmerdine House 'Eagle' , Portsea 1964,
Kaye House Frankston 1965 and the McClune House, Frankston 1967.

The exhibition is currently running at Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery and will continue until October 2nd.

A bit pricey, but I guess if you're a fan of Robin Boyd and 50's/60's Modernist architecture, it may be worth it.
