Robin Boyd is arguably the most influential architect there has been in Australia. Boyd was a renowned Victorian architect, author, critic, and public educator in the 50s and 60s, a leader in Melbourne’s Modern Architecture movement, a visionary in urban design, and outspoken on the ‘Australian Identity’.

Experience ‘Walsh Street’, the house Boyd designed for his own family in 1957, and his most well-known work. It has been extensively published both nationally and internationally as an exemplar of modernist Australian architecture and a house that continues to influence architectural thinking. It is now the home of the Robin Boyd Foundation.

Our Walsh Street Guided Tours provide unparalleled insight into Robin Boyd – from his family background, influences, the design of the house, his critical works and lasting legacy. Our guests are then welcome to roam Walsh Street and enjoy the truly unique experience.

The iconic residence at 290 Walsh Street that Boyd designed for his family in 1957 is an exemplar of Australian modernist architecture. As one of Australia’s foremost mid-century architects and innovators, Boyd continues to have a meaningful influence on design thinking today.
