Modern Melbourne Premiere: Kerstin Thompson


Join us at ACMI 2 for the premiere screening of Modern Melbourne 2023 featuring this year’s AIA Gold Medal winner Kerstin Thompson, followed by a Q+A with Heritage Council Victoria Chair Professor Philip Goad.

Now in its eighth season, Modern Melbourne is a series that documents the extraordinary practice of our most important architects and designers and looks at their lasting impact on Melbourne.

In this episode, Kerstin Thompson - one of Australia's most influential architects - explores how architecture can respond with great care to local conditions and expands on what she describes as her deep commitment to an architecture that contributes to our ‘living heritage’. 

Presented by Heritage Council Victoria in partnership with Open House Melbourne.
