Overview of your Melbourne tour:

From the comfort of your home, I warmly invite you to join an INDOOR Live Virtual Tour of the modern architecture of Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology University. This institution is close to my heart as a past student and with three generations of alumni in my family since the 1950s. We have seen immense changes in the university's landscape over this time. I will use a sample of the built environment here to share the creativity of Melbourne's architects as they have helped to bring this university with humble roots into the modern era and a sought-after place of tertiary study for today's local and international students. Through a study of these buildings, I will share stories that help you understand Melbourne's broader history and culture. Come along with your questions so we can enjoy warm and rich discussions together as you experience this unique perspective of our wonderful city.

Your Melbourne tour itinerary

A good internet connection is required to experience this tour. 1. Check in, welcome, introductions and explanation of tour 2. Our tour begins at Storey Hall - a complex combining multiple traditional and modern facades that speak to the parallel transition from old to new learning practices, one of the first building upgrades in Melbourne to utilise digital design methods due to the mathematics' and materials' complexities 3. School of Architecture and Design - known locally as the 'Geometric Building', here we see how many different 2D and 3D shapes we can find, a modern building that also references some of the earlier Gothic styles across the campus 4. Swanston Academic Building - has an incredible 'wow' factor for its environmental sustainability elements, functional facade, reflection of the city's colour and vibrancy and its delivery on time and under budget 5. Wrap up, answer additional questions and arrange extra resources
