This is Public: Waterfront
The first episode of This is Public documents Open House Melbourne’s Waterfront program.
Open House took a deep dive into the role design could play in reframing our relationship with water, with a special focus on urban waterways and Birrarung (the Yarra River). All of the guests interviewed on the podcast participated in the Waterfront program.
