News From Victoria - AAA Partners with Melbourne Architours


The Australian Architecture Association will soon be offering more local events for Victorian architecture and design enthusiasts.

AAA volunteer, architect Steve Rose, is our new representative in Melbourne and recently jointly organised a AAA Short Black - Architects In Their Space Talk by Sean Godsell at RMIT Design Hub, as a part of Melbourne Indesign the Event.

With the establishment of a Melbourne chapter, the AAA is excited to partner with Melbourne Architours, who share a passion for helping people to understand and appreciate architecture and design.

Melbourne Architours is a group of local Melburnians who work, live and breathe architecture and design. Keen to share their knowledge and generate discussion about the built environment, they invite you on a walking tour to learn about Melbourne's evolution through its building fabric. Join Architours on their CBD or inner urban tours. A great social outing, its not unusual for tour participants to continue the conversation afterwards over a caffeine pitstop or beer at the bar to dissect the good and the bad about the city and its architecture.

There are some great Architour walks and tours taking place in October you won't want to miss.
