Open House Melbourne
Open House delivers a broad range of public programs that showcase excellence in design and architecture, and celebrate the importance of urban diversity in the rapidly developing city. At the heart of their program is the Open House Weekend, where people get to visit significant buildings and sites across the city to learn about how the built environment and urban planning initiatives and issues influence our culture and shape our future. By empowering people with knowledge about the outcomes of good design decisions in our built environment, we aim to ensure Melbourne remains a livable and vibrant city for all.
Open House Melbourne received the prestigious Melbourne Award for Contribution to Profile by a Community Organisation in 2012, and received recognition for their work promoting architecture to the public with a Special Award from the Australian Institute of Architecture in 2012. Open House Melbourne is the result of an initiative by the Committee for Melbourne, Future Focus Group, and is part of the Open House Worldwide Network, founded by Open House London.
