Open Nature by Open House Melbourne

Open Nature is Open House Melbourne’s new program of walks, talks, tours and events curated for Melbourne Design Week 2022. The program explores a growing movement towards ecologically responsive, ‘more than human’ design practice that recognises the complex interrelations between humans and non-humans. Critical to this movement is the understanding that the health and sustainability of our natural eco-systems are vital to a thriving future for all. Open Nature expands on the past three years of our much-loved Waterfront series that focussed on water-responsive design and the movement towards recognising water as a living entity to shape better outcomes for our creeks, rivers, and oceans.
