Robin Boyd's first commission was for his cousin and famous Australian painter Arthur Boyd. In 1937, he created Arthur's studio at 'Open Country', Murrumbeena, Victoria. . #RobinBoyd100 program partner @sam_shepparton has just launched two major retrospectives:  Arthur Boyd: Landscape of the Soul (a Bundanon Trust touring exhibition) and Boyd Family: A Legacy of Pottery. Head up for a great country weekend and see these two major works from the famous Boyd family. painting: Red Nebuchadnezzar fallen in the forest with lion - Arthur Boyd, 1968-69 ___ #arthurboyd #arthurboydstudio #australianceramics #boydfamily @bundanontrust   #martinboydpottery #arthurmerrickboyd #robertbeckpottery #boydcollectors ___  #australiandesign #archilover #architreasure #architecturedesign #iconicarchitecture #modernist_architecture #modernistbuilding   #robinboydfoundation #RB100    #RobinBoyd100

The St Louis Pruitt-Igoe public housing development was designed by modernist architect Minoru Yamasaki (of famed NYC Twin Towers design). Replacing 19th century tenements which had dilapidated to slums, the 57 acre/ 23.5 hectare plan included green spaces, paths, and playgrounds designed around 33 11-storey buildings. Yet it was all pulled down by 1976. Come to  @dadofilmsociety screening of this documentary at #WalshStreet on Tuesday to find out why this social housing scheme was doomed to fail almost from the start.

#Homelessness  is defined as a loss of a sense of security, stability, privacy or safety, or the ability to control your living space. Only 7% of Australia's homeless are sleeping rough. Youth and the elderly are most at risk from lack of housing, too high rents, no support for first time home buyers and, frankly, lack of awareness of what actually causes a #homelessstate. It's #HomelessWeek , and @boyfoundation will be doing more in the future to further discussions and awareness about  #affordablehousing , #mediumdensity , #safehousing , #rentcontrol.   We want to help and join up thinking and action with government, private and social sectors to see how we can demand new approaches like Finland's #HousingFirst policies, supporting more @nightingale.housing ( @breathearchitecture ) medium density builds, and better designed, humanist social housing like #AthertonGardens ( @birddelacoeurarchitects + @McCabe_Architects 2012) #DoYourBit to help and learn more about why every person deserves a home. https://everybodyshome.com.au/about/. . Ask the new Federal Minister for Homelessness @lukehowarth_mp to create a national housing plan to serve those most in need of a #roofovertheirhead. #endinghomelessnesstogether #HW2019 #HomelessAdvocate #homelessnessaustralia #homelessnessawareness #RemoveTheStigma #YouthOffTheStreets

@boydfoundation had a great time @openhousemelb A highlight was #BoydCircle member @peterelliott.architects Parliament of Victoria Members' extension. The new annexe is the companion building  to the 1856 sandstone Parliament building (architect Peter Kerr), surrounding a sunken cloistered courtyard to protect views to the east. . The new building is sunken into Parliament's historic garden where 100% of its footprint has been replaced with Australian indigenous meadow landscape on the roof -- one of the largest green roofs in the #MelbourneCBD ___ architect:  @peterelliott.architects   landscaper: Paul Thompson Plant Design Pty Ltd. completed: 2018 area: 4850.0 m2 ___ #OpenHouseMelbourne   #openhousemelbourne2019 #OHMweekend #touristinmyowncity #touristinmyowntown #urbanexplorer #peterelliottarchitects   #peterelliottarchitecture #victoriaparliament

The @boydfoundation believes that saving and adapting places where we live creates places that we love. The fight to save the Beaumaris Art Group Studio @savebagstudio is a cause we support. Learn more about the @beaumaris_modern campaign to save this humble, but locally significant 1960s building and why the @nationaltrustvic is urging Bayside Council to reconsider its decision to demolish: http://bit.ly/2LPPBq5 #savebagstudio #nationaltrustvic #beaumarismodern #renovatedontdetonate #heritagevictoria #architecture #preservation #communityart #artscommunity #midcenturymodern #mcm #australiandesign #archilover #architreasure #architecturedesign #iconicarchitecture #mcmarchitecture #melbournearchitecture #midcenturymodernhome #midcenturystyle #modernist_architecture #modernistbuilding #robinboydfoundation #robinboyd #RB100 #robinboyd100 #walshstreet
