Open State: RMIT Micro Nano Research Facility

Good design creates the right environments for the right kinds of change. The RMIT MNRF is a heritage building re-imagined to catalyse cutting-edge semiconductor research. Join a tour through the RMIT MNRF, led by a senior engineer and architect who worked on the project. See how here, it is designed that effects the exact environment in which this research can take place, leaving the site’s heritage integrity entirely intact, retrofitting the future into the past. Please note that this highly secure and sensitive facility has never before been open to the general public. Numbers will be strictly limited. Special access procedures will need to be followed.


Open State is presented by Open House Melbourne as part of Melbourne Design Week—an initiative of the Victorian Government in collaboration with the NGV. Find out more about Melbourne Design Week here.
