Designing A Legacy : Adelaide


Almost everyone says goodbye to their family home at some stage. It’s hard enough at the best of times. Now imagine if your family home is designed by one of the greats of Australian architecture. Could you let it go? Or would you want to hold onto that design legacy?

Comedian and design nerd Tim Ross asks exactly that in his new live show. Part talk, part screening, part comedy show, Tim takes you on an architectural adventure into some of our most significant modernist houses.


Thursday 26 March – 7PM – SOLD OUT – Postponed


Due to changing policies with the University of SA and Samstag Museum of Art regarding health concerns, this show has now been postponed. Once we announce the new date, all current ticket holders will be offered tickets. Should they be unable to attend at that time, they will be offered a refund. 

Please bear with us during these challenging times, we are not dealing with this in isolation, as there are many organisations, venues and businesses impacted by this unprecedented world event.

“Architecture isn’t about buildings at all, it’s about people”

Join comedian, broadcaster and design nerd Tim Ross for a unique live cinematic show. Threading together a series of interconnected films with insights, anecdotes and his inimitable humour, Tim takes you on an architectural adventure into some of Australia’s most significant modernist houses.

This is a rare opportunity to glimpse inside houses designed by the greats including Robin Boyd, Chancellor and Patrick, Roy Grounds, Esmond Dorney, John Andrews and Ken Woolley. Tim draws out the stories of Australian families whose lives have been shaped within the walls of modern masterpieces.

Part talk, part screening, part stand-up comedy show, this is a journey into why architecture matters.

Picking up from the success of Tim’s ABC TV program Streets of Your Town and following the sold-out seasons of his live shows Man About the House and Motel, Tim tours DESIGNING A LEGACY nationally in 2020.
