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.

Canberrans with a shared interest for housing and architecture of the mid-century modern variety are looking forward to welcoming BHG travellers to Canberra in February 08. There's a good stock of mid-century modern architecture here, some of which is relatively unknown and under-appreciated. Stay tuned for program developments.
