Join Architectus Principal Ruth Wilson and Heritage Architect Arthur Andronas on a heritage tour of State Library Victoria – one of Melbourne’s most loved institutions and one of the most visited libraries in the world.

Learn about the revitalisation of The Ian Potter Queen’s Hall along with other heritage-listed spaces within the redeveloped Swanston Street landmark. Participants will be able to view the original designs and sketches of the Library and hear about how these drawings were referenced in the award-winning 2020 redevelopment. 

Plus, enjoy an opportunity to read up on Melbourne’s heritage buildings with two dedicated book displays in the La Trobe Reading Room and Redmond Barry Reading Room, specially curated for Open House Melbourne weekend.
