This is Public: Built/Unbuilt
Architects, designers and creative practitioners to respond to the Open House Melbourne 2022 theme Built/Unbuilt
For this special opening event at The Capitol, OHM in partnership with RMIT University’s School of Architecture & Urban Design, invited architects, designers and creative practitioners to respond to the 2022 theme Built/Unbuilt with a series of short presentations and conversations.
Speakers reflected on projects that amplify and register cultural memories, pre-histories and knowledges of place that are deeply present in the buildings, spaces and landscapes of our city.
