ACT Monaro Riverina Branch: A Garden for a Modernist House

10 April 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm AEST

Canberra, as the modern twentieth century capital of Australia, was designed with domestic gardens as an important component of the garden city planning.

Our location for this event is a totally Modernist house in Campbell; and the fully documented garden with only Australian plants is in sympathy with the house. But is it a Modernist Garden?

Join us to explore Modernism from the perspective of the garden at this iconic mid-century house with garden historians, home owner and designer Bronwyn Blue, the Australian Garden History Society and Canberra Modern.
A series of short talks (+Q&A) will focus on modernist architecture, modernist gardens, and gardens for modern living at a time of climate change. Then we can visit the garden and enjoy conversation together.

This is an Australian Garden History Society and Canberra Modern event for the Canberra and Region Heritage Festival.

Location: Campbell in the inner north. The address will be supplied after you register.

Cost: $10 members, $15 non-members (plus 50c ticket fee).

Bookings: are essential. Book through Trybooking. Numbers are limited.
