What’s on this July

Open House Melbourne’s July program is so much more than a weekend. Over the month of July, special programs, talks, tours and events will take place across the city; all designed to provide the public with a deeper insight into the forces shaping our city.

The Open House Melbourne July Program has become a true festival of architecture and the built environment. With the weekend as the flagship event, July’s programming is an opportunity to delve deeper into the make-up of our city, and to gain knowledge around how we can create a better Melbourne.

Meet with architects, designers, planners, and others working in the built environment. Listen to those who are at the cutting edge of design and architecture, and help us uncover and explore the biggest challenges.
