Make Your Own World: How to be an Architect

ArchiTeam and Open House Melbourne invite you and your budding architects to meet some people who can turn imaginary worlds into reality – virtual and actual.

A young wannabe architect (10yo) and an actual architect will show you how they bring worlds out of their imagination and into – virtual – reality. Using Minecraft and professional architectural 3D software, they will take you on a tour of a world that only exists in their heads.

And how do you make imaginary worlds real? Have a chat with the people who do it every day. An architecture student, a recent graduate and an architect will tell you about what they do, how they do it and how you can do it too!

Part 1: 11AM – 11.45AM
Out of Your Imagination and Into Virtual Reality
Minecraft and architectural 3D software demo (Rhino) by 10yo and his architect dad – Grant Dunlop from ZGA. Note: Suitable for younger children.

Part 2: 12:15PM – 1.30PM
Making Virtual into Actual
Find out what it’s like to be an architect in Q&A with people at various stages of becoming architects. Chat with a uni student, a recent graduate and a registered architect*.
