Award-wining architect Nicholas Gioia leads students on an informative journey through Melbourne, pointing out features and discussing architectural and historical aspects.
Join multi-award-winning architect, Nicholas Gioia, on a stimulating journey along the periphery of Melbourne’s CBD core; the North and Eastern borders. Witness the clash of architectures as you ponder 19thC “dreaming spires” being hastily overshadowed by the numberless cranes of the 21stC. Uncover some of the fascinating stories in the places where Melbourne’s centre rubs up against its very first suburbs.
Learn more about Melbourne, in particular, places that you may well have seen on many occasions and others viewed for the first time.
Nicholas tutors RMIT Architecture courses and is a guest assessor of Architecture student work at Melbourne University, RMIT and Deakin University.
