Open House Melbourne 2014

As much as we love designing beautiful prefab homes and modular buildings, it’s nice to take our design hats off from time to time and appreciate the fruits of someone else’s design labour. Luckily, Melbourne is full of design and architectural delights, and on the 26th and 27th of July over 100 buildings will open their doors during Open House Melbourne weekend . . .

Seasoned Open House veterans and new visitors alike will have a free and rare opportunity to admire and discover some of Melbourne’s most significant buildings including the Channel 9 Studios, Circus Oz Headquarters, RMIT Design Hub, St Patrick’s Cathedral, Parliament House, Melbourne City Baths, and many not-so-famous modular houses and unique spaces. While the event certainly invites curiosity, it is surprisingly cultured and layered with educational opportunities for people to learn about city-based industries, Melbourne’s history and future, and the built environment.

During the month of July, Open House Melbourne will be celebrating architecture, design and the city by offering film screenings, talks, art installations and events in addition to the weekend tours. If you happen to be in Melbourne, have a love of design and architecture, or a combination of both, then this is something you definitely won’t want to miss.
