Brutalist Block Party

We’re beyond excited to invite you to our Brutalist Block Party – a program of talks, workshops, lunches, dinners, social situations and a weekly produce market, which we’re proud to present with Open House Melbourne in May. It’s happening at 122 Roseneath Street, Clifton Hill – our current HQ and the site of Assemble’s future vertical village, developed in partnership with Wulff Projects and Icon Co.

Brutalist Block Party celebrates the under-celebrated, in an homage to 122 Roseneath’s Brutalist heritage and to post-war architecture everywhere. At the heart of this architectural approach is a convivial nod to the spirit of community. The program will unfurl amid Brutalist Bollards and Pillars of Contention – a specially commissioned spatial installation by Practise Studio Practise. The Brutalist Bar will provide drinks while ensuring that brutalist banter continues before, during and after each event.

Brutalist Block Party is part of a broader Open House Melbourne program called ‘What’s the beef with Brutalism?’ – a series of screenings, talks and tours that consider people’s beef with a Béton brut, explore the social significance of the style, and consider what is the new, new brutalism?
