Join us on this gritty architectural tour of Chippendale.

You will also discover transformative work by local heroes Durbach Block Jaggers, William Smart, John Wardle Architects, Tonkin Zulaikha Greer, Oculus and Aspect Studios. We will also sniff out one of Australia’s finest social housing schemes, independent art galleries, converted warehouses, inspired laneway developments, street art and discuss audacious plans to transform Central Station as we explore the suburbs underbelly.
The tour will finish at Handpicked Wines Cellar Door designed by Melbourne’s DesignOffice where we invite you to join us for prosecco and cheese.
