Open House Melbourne to host public discussion on future apartment standards
Open House Melbourne has your keys to the city's best architecture
Open House Melbourne is organising a series of free public tours designed to introduce participants to some of Melbourne’s most progressive civic landscape initiatives. Presented as part of AILA’s Festival of Landscape Architecture: This Public Life, Open House Melbourne invites locals and visitors to join the landscape architecture tours on 18 October and view the city’s landscape initiatives from a new perspective.
The Future of Chapel Street Tour
Learn how the City of Stonnington is developing attractive, accessible, greener and safer networks of streets and publicly accessible spaces, and providing opportunities for public art and cultural expression.
Pocket Parks Tour
This tour will show participants how public green space has been created in an area that’s seeing new developments swallow up all available land. Since 2009, the City of Yarra’s Converting Roads to Parks Program has generated open space projects by using existing traffic infrastructure such as council-owned car parks and sections of roads.
The Emerald Hill Cultural Precinct Tour
The City of Port Phillip developed a Masterplan in 2011 to create a vibrant arts and community hub by reinvigorating the South Melbourne Town hall precinct. Tour participants will be guided through the completed stages of the Masterplan and also be able to see the future of one of Melbourne's most significant heritage and cultural precincts.
All tours are free to the public. Registrations are essential via Event Brite.
Open House Hobart and Open House Perth will be held on 7-8 November.
