The RMIT Design Archives actively collects material relating to Melbourne design from the twentieth century onwards, and is an integral part of a vibrant research centre in the heart of the city.
Both digital and material, the collections represent historical and contemporary practices which tell the story of Melbourne as a design city, and provide the resources and support for research into Melbourne’s designed environment, design professions and practices. Located within the Design Hub, RMIT Design Archives publishes RDA Journal, develops exhibitions and publishes catalogues, papers and books related to its collections.
With its research focus and multi-disciplinary collection, the RMIT Design Archives is a unique resource for research in and about design.About
