Yes, Open House Melbourne is nearly here again … but this year it’s virtual. More than 50 buildings will be available for virtual tours. The list will be released on 16 July in a livestream event from the Trades Hall, and the tours will be available until the end of August.
Meanwhile, Open House’s month of architecture launches online on Wednesday 1 July, and the first event is the 2020 Speaker Series. Lovell Chen principal Anne-Marie Treweeke is contributing.
Anne-Marie will present our recent sustainable heritage work at the University of Melbourne Old Quad, as one of a range of speakers representing a diverse cross-section of architects working locally. The speakers include Jeffery Copolov (Bates Smart), Adrian Stanic (Lyons), Ruth Wilson (Architectus) and Melissa Bright (Studio Bright). As Open House says, this is a “rare opportunity to hear from the experts on the design process behind the built outcome”.
