Kerstin Thompson delivers call to create lasting legacies at Heritage Address 2019


More than 200 people filled Federation Hall at the University of Melbourne to hear leading architect Kerstin Thompson discuss her approach to heritage in her practice for last night’s Heritage Address 2019.

Talking the audience through projects as diverse as The Stables at the VCA, a women’s club in the city, Broadmeadows Town Hall and the Abbotsford Convent, Kerstin gave an insight into her work and called for all architects to be mindful of creating heritage for tomorrow through their adaptation and new build work. After her talk the University of Melbourne took the audience for a tour through her magnificent Stables project.

Many thanks to Open House Melbourne and the University of Melbourne for their collaboration on such and insightful and popular Heritage Address. The Heritage Council of Victoria is very proud to present the Heritage Address each year, now as an integral part of the Open House July public program.
