Modern Melbourne is a series of interviews that document the extraordinary lives and careers of some our most important architects and designers. In this interview, we speak with Phyllis Murphy.

Phyllis was one of two female graduates of architecture in 1949 at the University of Melbourne. She launched a practice with her husband John Murphy and the firm quickly became known for their interpretation of modernist design. in 1952, the couple joined forces with Kevin Borland, Peter McIntyre and engineer Bill Irwin to design the Melbourne Olympic Swimming Stadium. The Murphy practice was also instrumental in setting up the National Trust in Victoria, and Phyllis is now recognised for her collection of and expertise in Victorian-era wallpaper.

This film forms part of the Modern Melbourne story on the Culture Victoria website: http://cv.vic.gov.au/stories/built-en...

Modern Melbourne is made possible by the generous support of the interview subjects, the Heritage Council of Victoria and the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria.
