Melbourne Bound: The City in Books for OHM '22


From Saturday the 30th of July until Sunday 14 August 2022, Bookshop by Uro will open its doors to a limited exhibition, Melbourne Bound: The City in Books.

For Open House Melbourne 2022, Bookshop by Uro asks 10 Melburnians with a creative or professional interest in the built environment to nominate the books that have had the biggest influence on the way they understand the city , and their practice within it. The books form the centrepiece of a specially curated display of Melbourne-focused art, architecture and design publications within the shop.

Contributors: John Gollings, Christine Phillips, Andy Fergus, Kerstin Thompson, Eugenia Lim, Mark Jacques, Claire Martin, Conrad Hamann, Dan Hill, Jan van Schaik

Visit the Bookshop by Uro store in-person over the Open House Melbourne Weekend to see all contributors books on display, alongside their detailed descriptions on their chosen titles. If you can't make it, keep a close eye on our website as we will be launching the a digital version of the exhibition online.
