Why Modernism Matters' with Tim Ross

  • Deakin Edge Federation Square Melbourne, 3000 Australia (map)

Tim Ross is funny. He also loves modernist buildings. Through his social media presence, documentaries such as Streets of Your Town, and his stand-up shows, he has been a remarkable advocate for Australian Modernism.

As part of Open House Melbourne’s public program in 2018, Tim Ross will deliver the Heritage Council of Victoria’s annual Heritage Address, posing the question: ‘why does Modernism matter?’

Expect a dose of passion, some laughs, and plenty of insight as Tim explores the threats to these buildings, how we can recognise their value before they are lost and how the general public’s appreciation can grow for this overlooked period of Australia’s architectural history.
