Frederick Romberg (1913-1992): an architectural survey

Melbourne architect Frederick Romberg’s life and work, as well as his impact on contemporary design discourse, will be explored in an exhibition and accompanying documentary film to be launched during Australian Heritage Week. The exhibition and film draw on materials from the Romberg Collection, a collection of the Swiss-trained architect’s personal effects, correspondence, photos, scrapbooks and printed materials, housed in the RMIT Design Archives. The film can be viewed online (from 13 April) and at RMIT’s Design Hub window gallery.
