Archigram Melbourne (agm) provides a commentary on design while focusing on practice and education in Melbourne from the perspective of students and recent graduates.
Agm was founded in 2015 as an Instagram account (@archigram_melbourne) by Melbourne School of Design architecture student Isabella Etna as a way to provoke informal discussion and debate between her peers. This continues to be a central focus as well as creating a platform for students and young professionals in Melbourne. Agm is an online platform and annual publication “broadcasting all things architecture.” A collection of contributions from each year will be published in a annual publication.
