Raising the roof: a comedian's take on modern architecture

From Nine To Noon, 11:34 am on 22 August 2018

Australian comedian Tim Ross is well known for his passion for preserving Mid Century design furniture and architecture. 

He's bringing his internationally acclaimed modernist design stand-up show to Christchurch. Called How Much for the Green Chair with the Wooden Legs? it's a highlight in CoCA's up-coming programme of events celebrating the 50th anniversary of its Mid Century gallery.

Tim is the host of hugely popular Australian TV design series Streets Of Your Town.  He does a series of live lectures to literally packed houses.  His Man About the House talks in mid century modern homes have been described as "an open home with comedy thrown in".   Tim has also performed at the Venice Biennale, the London Festival of Architecture, and spoke at the opening of the London Design Museum. .
