The architect & the photographer

'Sunrise, 6.15am – meet me on Collins Street' was a typical phone message from architect Robin Boyd to photographer Mark Strizic.

This panel discussion looks at the creative relationship that develops as a photographer seeks to capture and interpret an architect's work in 2D images, and how photographers like Wolfgang Sievers and Mark Strizic captured the changes sweeping mid-century Melbourne.

Speakers include:

  • John Gollings – acclaimed architectural photographer
  • Philip Goad – director of the Melbourne School of Design
  • Vanessa Bird – director of Bird de La Coeur Architects
  • Alan Saunders – Radio National (discussion chair)

This talk complements the Library's exhibition As modern as tomorrow.
