The National Gallery of Victoria (1968) is one of the major works by architect Roy Grounds. With Robin Boyd and Frederick Romberg, Grounds was one of the most influential pioneers of modern architecture in Victoria. The design is based on simple geometric forms with a single archway entrance and the iconic waterwall window.
Inside, the Great Hall is dominated by a coloured glass ceiling designed by Leonard French. The National Gallery of Victoria is of significance as an architectural and cultural landmark in Melbourne. The building underwent extensive renovation, designed by architect Mario Bellini completed in 2003.
