A panel of leading Melbourne architects and designers will discuss the value of good apartment design at the inaugural Melbourne Design Week celebration in March.

Simon Knott (BKK Architects), Alison Cleary (Australian Institute of Architects) and Jeff Provan (Neometro) will lead the panel discussion, ‘High Density Happiness’ on 21 March in Brunswick, as part of the new annual design program linking creativity with business and community.

The apartment discussion will take place at Jewell Station in Brunswick, and will be one of many events on the ten-day program that includes talks, design-focused exhibitions, tours, panel discussions and industry events held at National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) International and partner venues throughout the city.

Melbourne Design Week is an initiative of the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) in collaboration with the Victorian Government, which aims to present, explore and celebrate design, and promote Melbourne as one of the design capitals of the world.  

‘High Density Happiness’ comes at a time when Victoria is coming to grips with new apartment design standards which were revealed in December. 

Melbourne Design Week will run between the 16 and 26 March. Click here for the full program.
