Exhibition temporarily closed

State Library Victoria is temporarily closed until further notice and all Library programs are cancelled or postponed until at least 13 April 2020. Full refunds will be issued and the Library will be in touch with ticket holders over the coming weeks. This does not affect events by Showtime Event Group.

This decision was not taken lightly and is a preventative step to to support the health and wellbeing of staff and volunteers and help stem the spread of COVID-19 in the Victorian community.

For full details on State Library Victoria’s temporary closure please visit our information page.

Explore the work of Peter Wille, who amassed a collection of more than 6000 colour photographs of Melbourne’s architectural wonders throughout the 1950s and 1960s.

This amateur photographer and architectural draftsman took images that capture a period of experimental design, from the austerity measures of post-World War II to the height of modernism. 

The exhibition includes works by groundbreaking architects Robin Boyd, Peter McIntyre, Kevin Borland, and John and Phillis Murphy.
