Focusing on the central theme, Reconnectthis year Open House Melbourne asks us to reconsider the way we will occupy our city and to envisage new ways of designing and adapting our buildings and infrastructure as we emerge from the impact of COVID-19. 

This is the moment in which we can reclaim the agency for design in shaping the public good and, in turn, re-design our values, systems and spaces and achieve a more adaptable, equitable and sustainable future for our built environment. This July, we hope you’ll join us for an ambitious, but exciting Open House Melbourne program. 

There are over 100 buildings and events to explore across the City of Melbourne, City of Boroondara, City of Hobsons Bay, City of Maribyrnong, City of Port Phillip, City of Stonnington and University of Melbourne. There’s also an excellent selection of talks, walks, events, films, virtual tours and more, taking place throughout July and during the Weekend, 24 + 25 July.

The full list of programs will be live soon.
