Assemble at Open House Melbourne
July 20, 2015
Open House Melbourne has kept us extra busy this year, with not one, not two, but three events we’re either presenting or supporting in the lead-up and over the weekend (25-26 July). Put the following dates in your diary.
Better Living Forum – Tue 21 July
How do we address issues of housing liveability and affordability with a growing population? In response to the Victorian Government’s Better Apartments Discussion Paper (and our own Small Footprint Living Survey), we’re proud to support the Better Living Forum. Come hear a lawyer, economist, architect, planner (and many more) urban professionals speak on their visions for the growth of our city
Utopia City with tin&ed – Sun 26 July
Along with mischievous design duo tin&ed, we’ll be hosting two collaborative city-building workshops for kids (big and small) using all sorts of recycled materials and modelling clay thanks to Educational Colours. Contribute your creation to a growing metropolis that will evolve over the course of the day. City-lovers of all ages welcome (parents must be supervised by children, hehe).
Barbicania screening and panel discussion – Sun 26 July
On the Assemble Papers front – we’re proud to support the Australian premiere of Barbicania, a kooky homage to that temple of Brutalist architecture and the latest film by Living Architectures directors Ila Bêka & Louise Lemoine. Presented by Open House Melbourne and DIS-cour.se (in association with us and supported by DADo) – go team! Tickets available here.
Drop by, say hello and discover your #curiocity throughout the programme – we’d love to see you!
