When Europeans founded Melbourne, they saw it as a place with no architectural history. So, in constructing a city, architects drew on a variety of different traditions from Europe. Melbourne’s cityscape became a fascinating medley of Classical, Gothic, Venetian, Romanesque, Tudor and other styles. This talk traces that history with particular attention to the influence of ancient Greek architecture on the city’s buildings from the 1840s to today.
