Comedian and self-proclaimed architecture nerd Tim Ross is picking up the microphone to bring to life his acclaimed ABC TV series with a brand new stage show, somewhat predictably titled, Designing a Legacy Live 2023.
Part slideshow, part stand up comedy and part architecture talk, Designing a Legacy Live sees Tim doing what he loves best – telling stories anchored by his passion for Australian architecture and design.
Since hanging up his radio headphones, Tim has created and presented the award-winning Streets Of Your Town and two series of Designing a Legacy for ABC-TV, not to mention authoring three bestselling books – Scorcher, Motel and The Rumpus Room.
In addition to regularly hosting his local pre-school’s annual fundraiser, Tim has performed live in more than 100 architecturally significant buildings across Australia, the UK and US. Tim was awarded the President’s Prize from the Australian Institute of Architects, followed by an honorary fellow of the Institute in 2022.
Tim Ross is one of our finest story tellers, don’t miss this opportunity to see him on stage.
“[Tim] Ross has become one of TV’s most persuasive presenters: authentic, congenial, and knowledgeable. His passion though is the way that good design can create a sense of community, a sense of place, and offer, in difficult times, much needed, visions for our future.”
– Graeme Blundell, The Australian
The property, designed by renowned Brisbane-based architect Vitaly Gzell, was built in 1965 for the Geddes family on a massive 1517 sqm block, with sweeping views over Kings Beach, Shelly Beach and Bribie Island.
The current owner Tristan worked closely with John Robertson, Meg Ryan and the team at OGE Group Architects for the design and C2 Projects for the entire build.
The design brief included creating more liveable space downstairs, maximising the view of the northern outlook towards Shelly Beach, and ensuring energy efficiency.
