Roy Grounds (1905-1981) was a renowned Victorian architect and a leader in Australia’s modern architecture movement. During his early career he spent some time working in the United States and England and after the war he was involved in setting up the curriculum for the School of Architecture at the University of Melbourne. Between 1953 and 1962, Grounds was part of the Grounds, Romberg and Boyd partnership, in which time he designed the Australian Academy of Science in Canberra. When Grounds left the partnership he took with him the National Gallery of Victoria and Arts Centre project, completed in 1968.
