Event description

Description

Fitzroy is Melbourne’s oldest suburb and one of its smallest. From ‘slum’ to gentrified hub of the inner-north,
this neighbourhood continues to attract a lively cross-section of people and architecture. On this Architour we
ramble down century-old bluestone lanes and intimate streets, exploring a range of housing types from
boom-style terraces, moderne bachelor flats, 1960s walk-ups and the new wave of apartment buildings. We
also review the successes and failures of various public housing models and reflect on a world-leading urban
designer’s 1977 study into how terrace frontages influence street life.
