The Open House Melbourne program provides a wonderful opportunity for people to familiarise themselves with some of Melbourne’s most outstanding architecture.
This not-for-profit organisation showcases an abundance of buildings that run the gamut of time periods and uses, issuing an investigative and selective challenge to all interested parties.
At the request of Emma Telfer, I was asked to shoot several short interviews with Melbourne personalities as they spoke about their favourite Melbourne buildings, all of which feature in the Open House Melbourne program through 26-27 July, 2014.
The first video (top) was made with the ever ebullient Peter Maddison from Grand Designs Australia, who riffs eloquently on the architectural and historical value of the Mission to Seafarers in Melbourne, Australia.
The second video (below) features Peter Hitchener from Channel Nine News Melbourne, who speaks of his fondness for the National Gallery of Victoria.
