Melbourne Design Week is Australia’s largest annual international design event presenting innovative and engaging projects across an 11-day program.

Now in its eighth year, Melbourne Design Week is a vital platform to profile the breadth of Australian talent, from emerging to established design practitioners and celebrates the diversity and excellence of Australian design and architecture.

Continuing to explore the overarching theme of ‘Design the world you want’, the 2024 edition brings into focus the use of energy, ethics and ecology to encourage positive change, reimagine existing systems and offer innovative design solutions to complex global challenges.
