Open House Melbourne
Open House Melbourne (OHM) is an independent organisation that fosters public appreciation for architecture and public engagement in the future of our cities. During the annual Open House Weekend, hundreds of architecturally significant buildings open their doors to the public enabling tens of thousands of people to actively celebrate Melbourne’s architecture and urban environment. By empowering people with knowledge around the impact of good design decisions in our built environment, OHM aims to ensure Melbourne remains a liveable and vibrant place now and into the future.
OHM is part of the Open House Worldwide Network, founded by Open House London 25 years ago and now in 40 cities around the world. The global success of the Open House Weekend is due to its approach of offering diverse, direct design experiences, free-of-charge, in a non-elitist manner. It annually reaches one million people worldwide – the largest audience of any public-facing architecture program.
