We acknowledge the traditional owners and sovereign custodians of the land on which Collingwood Yards is situated, the Wurundjeri people of the Woiwurrung language group. We extend our respect to their Ancestors and all First Peoples and Elders past, present, and future.

Open House Melbourne
Cities and Architecture

Open by appointment only

Our programs aim to foster public engagement in conversations about the future of our cities through the lens of architecture and design.

We encourage civic participation through our much-loved Open House Weekend in Melbourne, and now Bendigo, where tens of thousands of people come out to celebrate architecture and the city. Increasingly, we are tackling big city topics through major public talks, tours, and debates – we produce over 100+ special events that are designed to build a groundswell of interest in critical issues for the city.

By empowering people with knowledge around the impact of good design decisions in our built environment, we aim to ensure Victoria—and its capital city—remains a liveable and vibrant place now and in the future.

Sign up to our newsletter via our website to be the first to hear about our upcoming programs and events.
