The Melbourne Open House Speaker
Series for 2009 has invited 9 of
Melbourne’s most prominent design
professionals to discuss aspects of
their work with you. Each speaker
has an architectural degree and each
one of them has gone on to influence
the shape and character of the city
of Melbourne which we live in today.
Speakers will be given ten minutes to
discuss their work in Melbourne. The
first three speakers will focus on the
need for good design and the urban
design of Melbourne.
The following six speakers will then
discuss a small selection of their own
work in Melbourne, with an emphasis
on explaining the conceptual ideas
behind the built form.
We will ask every speaker to conclude
their speech with an image of their
favourite Melbourne building - an
insight into which buildings our top
professionals rank as our best.
The evening will be chaired by
Professor Philip Goad, Deputy Dean of
the Faculty of Architecture, Melbourne
University and the former President of
the Victorian Chapter of the Australian
Institute of Architects.
Doors open at 6pm, with
presentations starting at 6.30pm.
Food and drinks will be available
throughout the evening.
