St George's Peace Memorial Church

Robin Boyd and Frederick Romberg 1964

Description

St. George's Anglican Church in East Ivanhoe is one of only two Australian churches designed by renowned Australian architects, Robin Boyd and Frederick Romberg. Completed in 1964, St George’s was part of Melbourne’s post-war church building boom, inspired by modernism and a less-traditional approach to ecclesiastical design.

What's On
