The life and times of Moir and Sutherland – with Peter Freeman OAM

Practicing both as architect and historian, Peter Freeman has dedicated more than four decades to the conservation, documentation and celebration of Australia’s architectural heritage. This is a rare opportunity to hear from one of Australia's foremost heritage architects and historians.

Peter Freeman is the author of many books on Australia’s heritage and vernacular buildings, and has worked on conservation projects across the country. In 2019, he was awarded a medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) for his service to architecture.

In this presentation, Peter will explore the life and times of Malcolm Moir and Heather Sutherland – Canberra’s 20th-century ‘architectural power couple’; and the work of the two modernists Neville Ward and Ian Slater, who joined the practice following the tragic death of Heather Sutherland in 1951.

We’ll discover how they designed a singularly coherent collection of residential and commercial buildings, spread throughout the fledgling city.
