In its 11th year, this annual Open House Melbourne will produce its largest program ever presented. Doors of 224 buildings will open to the public, with 87 of them new for 2018. Included are 23 residential properties in our beautiful city and 30 plus special events. Open House will take place on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 July 2018, so watch out for the full program closer to date. Stay updated via the website by signing up, and follow the conversation on their Facebook page and Instagram account. If you've always wanted to be a volunteer at this amazing event, HERE is your chance.

Last year, Open House Ballarat had its inaugural event and a hugely successful launch. Stay in touch because the second edition will soon be announced. Open House Melbourne weekend runs from 10am to 4pm each day, and on average, visitors get to see 4-5 buildings each day. It's going to be difficult to choose from so many options and beautiful buildings. However, a full month of special events in July will help you engage in your love for architecture. This includes film screenings at ACMI, public talks, the annual Heritage Address, the Living Cities Forum and a major exhibition titled The Australian Ugliness, and more.

Have a sneak peek at Australia 108 on Melbourne's Southbank. It'll become the 'tallest building to roof' in the Southern Hemisphere at 319 metres tall. This is your chance to explore behind the scenes of this unique project. Bunjil Place, the city of Casey's new cultural and entertainment precinct for Melbourne's South East is also one to see with a major library, gallery, multipurpose studio space, 800 seat theatre, civic offices and outdoor plaza. It'll come to life with a children's trail, films in the plaza and design talks. Book a guided tour and you'll get VIP access to back-of-house areas.

The Leaning and Teaching Building at Monash Clayton is one that does not require pre-booking this year. It has 60 innovative learning and teaching spaces that meet 21st-century student demands and incorporates a horizontal field of spaces within a broad, low-rise building. The Living Cities Forum on 26 July explores the role of design, planning and architecture that shapes our society. Can we shape larger forces through architecture and urban design? Do generous and thoughtful spaces make good citizens or encourage inclusive communities? Can architecture win elections or create new economies? Come and find out. This year's theme is 'Shaping Society' and it extends last year's conversation on 'liveability'. This is a day-long event at Deakin Edge of Fed Square. Sign up and/or check the Facebook event pages to stay tuned. It's not going to be an easy task to choose from such a wide range of choices. So much to see and so little time, is the perfect adage for this event.
