Cultural and physical gifts

Contribute to cultural works or donate items of significance to RMIT, including collections, artworks, books, manuscripts and other items.

RMIT’s 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.

The collections are both digital and physical, and represent historical and contemporary practices which tell the story of Melbourne as a design city. The Archives provide resources and support for research into Melbourne’s designed environment, design professions, students and the public.
