No Risk! A Century of Dense Living in South Yarra - walking tour
South Yarra offers a physical laboratory for Melbourne’s renewed interest in density, providing a convenient cross section of built examples from maisonettes to walk-up flats and recent high end towers. Walking a meandering path from 1920 to today offers an opportunity to compare a range of dense building types, and observe changes in development activity, successive waves of architectural movements and the ever-present effects of urban governance. This walking tour is intended to be highly interactive and seeks to provide a platform for positive debate about inner suburban Melbourne’s past, present and future.

When & Where
We are a group of local Melburnians who work, live and breathe architecture and design in this city. Keen to share the knowledge and generate discussion about the built environment, we invite you on a walking tour with us to learn about Melbourne’s evolution through its building fabric. Come and join us for one of three tours, followed by a caffeine pitstop or beer at the bar to dissect the good and the bad about the city and its architecture.
