Cities of Architecture: Venice

The second instalment of ACCA‘s ‘Cities of Architecture‘ talks comes from Stuart Harrison, co-founder and co-host of former RRR show The Architects and director of Melbourne architecture practice HAW. Take a virtual tour of Venice with Stuart, who has visited Venice numerous times – including in 2012 when he and the rest of The Architects team broadcast live from the Australian Pavilion at that year’s Venice Architecture Biennale.

Running from March to October, the ‘Cities of Architecture’ program brings together leading architects, designers and academics to discuss some of the world’s most inspiring cities through the built environment, culture and urban history.

Arrive from 5pm to enjoy a complimentary Venice-inspired cocktail created by the Melbourne Gin Company and Starward Whisky. The seminar will begin at 6pm.
