More recently, he collaborated with the National Archives of Australiaon a new book, Motel Images of Australia on Holidays, capturing the best of Australian holidays from the 1950s to ‘80s. He performs his new show Motel at 1960s motels.
In 2019, Tim Ross was awarded the Australian Institute of Architects National President Prize for his commitment to championing architecture and the conservation of significant buildings, including his work in the Save Our Sirius campaign.Tim has loved architecture since he was young.
“I was a kid of the suburbs and I was intrigued by the interesting houses around me and that were being built.”
“The best architecture is open to all of us and it should be for all of us. The Open House program is about getting out, taking a sticky beak and letting design wash over you, move you and inspire you. I encourage everyone young, old and in between to get involved. To look up, to look across and back in time and to the future. To let it move you.”
