One of Australia’s most iconic mid-century architects, Robin Boyd (1919–1971) rose to prominence with ‘The Australian Ugliness’ (1960), a biting attack on what he saw as the debased quality of its cities and design culture. ‘Late Works’ unveils the urban public architectural projects designed by Boyd, which were significant in the betterment of Australia’s built environment but have been largely forgotten. This work includes building and planning designs that seem counter to his reputation as an architect of polite modernist private homes. Considered alongside Boyd’s exhibition work, multimedia designs, and writing, it is an insightful window into his ambitions and struggles.
