Event description
Architecture and urban design walking tour

About this event

At first glance East Melbourne looks like a neighbourhood straight out of London, with grand Victorian terraces and mansions fronting lush park squares. But among the 19th Century grandeur are many smart art deco apartment blocks, including an entire street lined with the creations of a single architect. We explore how these buildings came to be well after East Melbourne was fully built-out and review how contemporary development proposals are re-shaping the suburb. The tour also takes in several hospitals that were inspired by international trends in healthcare design and still express a sense of modernity today.
