Modern Melbourne: Regional Premiere


Join us for the regional premiere screening of Modern Melbourne 2023 featuring this year’s AIA Gold Medal winner Kerstin Thompson.

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’.

Following the screening, Heritage Council of Victoria's Ruth Redden will be joined in conversation by KTA associate principal Claire Humphreys to chat 'future heritage', KTA's practice and favourite buildings!

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