Peter Wille documented buildings by groundbreaking architects including Robin Boyd, Peter McIntyre, Kevin Borland, and John and Phillis Murphy. He amassed a collection of more than 6000 colour photographs of Melbourne’s architectural wonders throughout the 1950s and 1960s. This amateur photographer and architectural draftsman took images that capture a period of experimental design, from the austerity measures of post-World War II to the height of modernism.
You have until 1st December, 2019 to view the collection. It’s a free event with no booking required.
