Notes Essays by Alan Pert, Philip Goad, Gini Lee and Amor Connors.
Summary "This exhibition celebrates a 20th century wonder - The Motel. Imported from America and pioneered in Australia by entrepreneur David Yencken, the exhibition features two distinct motel designs established through his patronage. Two prominent mid-twentieth century architects, John Mockridge and Robin Boyd designed the Mitchell Valley Motel, Bairnsdale and the Black Dolphin Motel, Merimbula respectively. Outside their usual repertoire, these two projects enabled Mockridge and Boyd to explore the design potential of the motel, beyond an appropriation of the American 'googie' style in Australia. Taking cues from the original modernist designs, MOTEL brings together drawings, correspondence and photographic material in a re-telling of an enlightened period in Australian Architecture"--Publisher's website.
