Our collection

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.
