On the work of Robertson & Hindmarsh Architects
Potts Point, NSW, Australia
Scott Robertson on the Work of Robertson & Hindmarsh Architects, 1953 – 1977
Hosted by the Twentieth Century Heritage Society of NSW & ACT, architect Bruce Robertson’s son, Scott Robertson, will present the outcome of Bruce Robertson and Thomas Joseph Hindmarsh in creating Robertson & Hindmarsh Architects. As the son of Bruce Robertson, Scott grew up in close proximity to his father’s Seaforth studio and speaks from a perspective of unconscious influence from the firm’s work and dedication.
As Robertson & Hindmarsh Architects was recognised first and foremost for it’s state of the arch design of garden apartments, houses, multi-level high rise apartments and town houses, among others, the period of 1953 to 1977 stands pivotal in the firm’s history as it grounded the firm’s reputation in Australia.
Having started as a private practice architect at his father’s firm in 1977, Scott will present the firm’s work with a breadth of field knowledge having completed his Honours Degree in Architecture, a Masters Degree in Building Conservation and PhD in Japanese Architecture. As the author of book chapters, articles and journals, Scott wrote “The Architecture of The Astor,” “Everyman’s Castle: Housing in NSW 1918-1942,” a series of submissions in the “Encyclopedia of Australian Architecture,” and “Challenges in Protecting 1960s Architect-Designed Houses,” published in an issue of the Journal of Architectural Conservation.
