Boyd’s Error at Pin Up Gallery

Currently on display at Melbourne’s Pin Up Gallery, Boyd’s Error: Planning’s Curse sets out to change the way we perceive Australian urbanism.

Boyd’s Error at Pin Up Gallery


November 8th, 2011

Boyd’s Error: Planning’s Curse. Reflections on The Australian Ugliness (TAU) is the latest exhibition at Pin Up Architecture & Design Project Space in Melbourne’s Collingwood.

The exhibition explores Australian urbanism in the form of a photo collage depicting 3 different versions of the Gertrude, Brunswick, Johnston and Smith Street Fitzroy block – one as the architecture might have looked if constructed during more stable economic times and with stricter city planning regulations; one as it exists today, and one as it may look in the future if developed irrespective of current planning regulations.


A fascinating look at Australian Urbanism, neighbourhood character and heritage planning policies.

Boyd’s Error: Planning’s Curse runs until 26 November.
