Peter Raisbeck, Christine Phillips and Norman Day discuss the surprising and ambitious last works produced by Robin Boyd.

The Book

Robin Boyd: Late Works unveils the urban and public architectural projects designed by Robin Boyd in the final decade before his untimely death in 1971.

This book documents Boyd’s ambitions and struggles to shape Australia’s understanding of itself as an urban nation during this time. For Boyd, the 1960s was a turbulent decade of architectural practice that, by the time of his death, had come with thwarted ambitions and high personal cost.

Join authors Peter Raisbeck and Christine Phillips, and architect and former Boyd-employee, Norman Day in discussion of this publication.
