ASPECTS OF MODERNISM IN CANBERRA

Join us over the October Long Weekend as we explore Canberra's wealth of fine and innovative Modernist architecture.

The Society is exploring the work of architects Robin Boyd and Roy Grounds (of Grounds Romberg & Boyd) two of Australia’s foremost architects from the second half of the twentieth century.

Canberra provides a unique opportunity to explore their work, which includes individual residences, group housing and institutional buildings.

We will also be seeing some of Harry Seidler’s most important works, one of Australia’s finest Brutalist style buildings, important Modernist buildings on the Campus of the Australian National University, and taking time to visit Canberra’s Arboretum.

Flexible ticketing including individual walks and value packages. This weekend has been co-ordinated with Canberra Modern.
