Bates Smart Studio Director and Open House Melbourne President Tim Leslie is offering his exclusive insights into the history of the practice that is responsible for delivering some of Melbourne’s most iconic cultural buildings that have contributed to the heritage and progression of our capital city.
The catalogue of high-caliber designs on display includes the Melbourne Public Library, Melbourne Town Hall, Wilson Hall at the University of Melbourne, ICI House, Collins Place, Crown Metropol, Royal Children’s Hospital, 171 Collins Street, Victoria Racing Club’s Club Stand and the upcoming Australian Embassy in Washington.
Discover the Bates Smart history and its evolution across a century, led by its pioneering practice leaders – from Joseph Reed, Francis and Charles Smart, Edward Bates to Osborn McCutcheon – that defined an era through their prolific designs; and how its current Directors will continue this legacy for decades to come.
