Open doors: Rose Seidler House

Rose Seidler House was designed and built from 1948-50 by Harry Seidler AC OBE (1923–2006) for his parents Max and Rose, and began the young architect’s distinguished career in Australia.

One of three houses designed for his family in a bushland setting overlooking Ku-Ring-Gai National Park, the house was inspired by European and north-east American architecture, and reflects Harry’s education and experience with some of the most noted figures in Modernism. This online talk examines a house significant for its place in Australian architectural history, and its construction in a time of post-war scarcity of materials and conservative building regulations.

Join curator Joanna Nicholas to hear more about this fascinating house.
