Melbourne Bound: The city in books


Bookshop by Uro is an online and physical bookstore offering a tightly curated selection of specialist art, architecture and design books from around Australia and the world.

Owned and managed by design publisher Uro Publications, the bookshop operates out of Collingwood Yards, an arts precinct in Melbourne’s inner north that plays host to some of Australia’s most vibrant creative organisations, retailers and hospitality venues, including West Space Gallery, Bus Projects, PBS Radio and others.

As a place for the exchange of ideas on architecture, design and urbanism, Bookshop by Uro hosts regular events, exhibitions and discussions. No small thanks to the talents of our good friends Architecture Architecture, it’s also a great space to sit and leaf through a good book or two.

What's On

First we shape our buildings and thereafter they shape us, runs the famous aphorism. Arguably, though, the way we understand our cities is shaped as much by the stories we tell about them, and by ideas, as it is by the built fabric that surrounds us.

For OHM 2022, Bookshop by Uro asks 10 Melburnians with a creative or professional interest in the built environment to nominate the books which had the most profound influence on their understanding of Melbourne, and their practice within it. The books form the centrepiece of a specially curated display of Melbourne-focused art, architecture and design publications.
