With the generous support from Riegers Copy and Print and the Friends of Futuna Charitable Trust, we are ecstatic to present Tim Ross!

Australian comedian, television presenter, writer and self proclaimed “design nerd” rolls around in his passion for Modernist architecture as he states his broad ranging and often hilarious case for the protection of our architecture of the mid 20th Century.

He may be best known for his work on TV and radio (at different times hosting both the number one breakfast and drive shows in Sydney) but comedian Tim Ross has also always had a passion for architecture and design.

Among his many notable ventures in writing, performance, and exhibition; Tim also passionately supports important issues in Australian architecture and design, in particular the ‘Save Our Sirius’ campaign, fighting alongside the local community to protect Sydney’s now neglected modernist apartment building, Sirius. In 2018 Tim was awarded the National Trust Heritage Award for Advocacy, which recognised his activism in drawing attention to Australia’s legacy of modernist architecture and promoting its conservation. In 2019 Tim was awarded the National President’s Prize from the Australian Institute of Architects, to “recognise him for his advocacy, activism and outstanding contribution to the architecture profession”.

This is a free event and all are welcome, registrations required as seating is limited.
