This year for Melbourne Design Week we are participating in an Exhibition that presents a survey of projects both unbuilt and built, which reflect new approaches to finance, design, development and operations, including Nightingale Housing, Assemble, Property Collectives, CoDev, Tripple, and the Third Way. The exhibition is presented by Andy Fergus, Alexis Kalagas, Katherine Sundermann and Jana Perkovic.
The Home Made: Home Made: Reinventing How We Live in Melbourne exhibition and events from March 19 – March 21 will explore the answers to: Why has Melbourne become the locus of housing innovation in Australia?
Over the last decade, a range of new models have emerged in response to the low-quality of investor-driven options and a growing desire for more urban lifestyles. Together, these models suggest a more optimistic and inclusive vision of how housing can shape our city.

- Your ideas on what needs to change for this model to work for you
- Your personal specific unmet housing needs
- How you think this approach to delivering more affordable home ownership should evolve
The Exhibition will be held at the Tree Paper Gallery, Campbell’s Arcade (Underground), 295 Flinders Street, Melbourne.
