Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery
Out of the square: Beach architecture on the Mornington Peninsula
13 November 2008 - 22 February 2009
An MPRG exhibition, curated by Rodney James
An architectural exhibition that brings together past, present and future designs for coastal living and features 35 exemplary projects by Victoria’s leading architects, including visionary projects for the future.
Three of the last four prestigious RAIA ‘Robin Boyd awards for residential architecture’ have been presented to homes on the Mornington Peninsula and McBride Charles Ryan have recently been awarded the State’s highest honor: the Harold Desbrowe-Annear Award for their radical Klein bottle house in Rye. While there may be something in the air, the Peninsula has long been considered a fertile breeding ground for innovative architecture in Australia. From the 1920s, modern movements in architecture have been played out on the shores and hinterland of the Mornington Peninsula by the likes of Walter Burley Griffin, Roy Grounds, Robin Boyd and McGlashan Everist and numerous younger architects around the millennium including Sean Godsell, Jackson Clements Burrows, Kerstin Thompson and John Wardle.
Out of the square: Beach architecture on the Mornington Peninsula is the first exhibition to survey the rich traditions of coastal architecture on the Peninsula. Arranged geographically so that modern and contemporary projects rub shoulders, the exhibition considers the way in which architecture has developed under the rubric of form, patronage and place.

Yes, where are the real beach houses. Don't blame the Baby Boomers. They are not the ones commissioning or designing these boxes. The McBride Charles Ryan object was laughably alien.
