Revisiting Modern Melbourne

In the year of our BE-150 celebration the University of Melbourne partnered with Open House Melbourne to present abridged versions of the Modern Melbourne films which feature our distingished alumni.

The Modern Melbourne filmed interviews and rich archival material documents the extraordinary lives and careers of some of our most important architects and designers including Peter McIntyre, Mary Featherston, Daryl Jackson, Graeme Gunn, Phyllis Murphy, Allan Powell and now Dione McIntyre.

Abridged versions of the Modern Melbourne series were made possible by the generous support of the interview subjects, the Heritage Council of Victoria and the University of Melbourne's BE–150 program, celebrating 150 years of built environment education.
