Boyd puts forward his argument in a 1947 published book ‘Victorian Modern’ about the major and larger architectural works getting inspired by the international architectural periodicals released at that time than that by the local conditions. He always expected the great Victorian architecture to identify and represent Australian culture on an international platform. It strongly addresses Boyd’s persistent and relentless desire to seek recognition for Australian architecture all around the world.But later his disappointment, sorrow and the drift from optimism is evident from his book written in 1972 called ‘The Great Australian Dream’where he conveys his displeasure over the transition of Australian cultural identity from a dependent country of nineteen’s century to a subscriber and later to aninternational colony of twentieth century. In amidst of it, the discovery and self exploration of Australia’s own national culture gets overlooked. Our essay highlights this shift in the perspective of Boyd from a positive side of hope and desire to a pessimistic disillusionment as he perceives these variations with time.
