Forthcoming Tour: Canberra, 2008
While a quintessential Victorian, Boyd also built a number of important buildings in the ACT, NSW, South Australia and Tasmania. In February of next year, BHG members and friends will have an opportunity to visit some of Boyd's projects, and other significant buildings, in the ACT. Special thanks to Sebastian Clark (of the Manning Clark Foundation and House) and Professor Frank Fenner (the Fenner House) for making their homes available. Thanks also to Martin Miles and the RAIA ACT Chapter Register of Significant Twentieth Century Architecture (RSTCA) Committee (what a mouthful!) for their support and assistance to date. I recommend Martin's canberrahouse.com website - it offers an excellent overview of significant C20th Modernist architecture in the ACT.
