“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.



Concept, Writer and Narrator: Tim Ross

Director: Andrew Garrick
