Robin Boyd and the ‘House Of Ideas’ at 290 Walsh Street, Melbourne

Following the exhibition success of Merchant Builders: Towards an archive (2015) and ‘Fooks: The House Talks Back’ (2016), this year, Melbourne School of Design’s Critical and Curatorial Practices in Design explores the works of Robin Boyd, culminating in the ‘House Of Ideas’ exhibition to be held at 290 Walsh Street.
The ‘House of Ideas’ is an invitation to travel through and across multiple Boyd ideas – buildings, display homes, exhibitions, curatorial strategies, installations, products, prototypes, grand visions and two World Expos in Montreal (1967) and Japan (1970).

The exhibition will be installed at Walsh Street for a limited time and forms the first step towards the Robin Boyd Foundation’s 2019 Centenary Celebrations.

Led by Professor Philip Goad and Professor Alan Pert, Twenty-three MSD Masters’ students have examined Robin’s career chronology, with their research and exhibition pieces presenting insights to a collection of works that sit outside the more familiar writings and buildings.
A special programming highlight will be Philip Goad in conversation with Peter McIntyreand Mary Featherston at the ‘House Of Ideas’ Opening Session on Saturday 11th November from 1 – 4pm.
