Mid Century Modern Tour #2

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

17 Nov 2018

Back by popular demand, this year’s architecture tours will take their cue from the 2018 Design Canberra theme: geometry. The 2018 Design Canberra festival will celebrate the strong geometry present throughout our city and the ways it creates human, creative and global connections.

During this tour you will visit three examples of Enrico Taglietti’s sculptural architecture in a residential setting. They highlight some of the themes and elements present throughout his long and illustrious career— spreading roof overhangs with banded fascias, an emphasis on horizontality through the use of massing, and battered walls and unpainted surfaces for texture.

The tours will be presented by local architecture enthusiast and author of Canberra House, Martin Miles. The tours will also feature a variety of special guests, including internationally renowned architects and planners. Please meet at the Civic Square bus stop at 8:50am. (Buses will depart and return to this location each week.)
