City of Melbourne Art and Heritage Collection
The City of Melbourne recently completed the most comprehensive review of heritage buildings within the Hoddle Grid since the 1990s.
The Hoddle Grid was laid out by surveyor Robert Hoddle in 1837 and remains the heart of Melbourne. The Heritage Team at the City of Melbourne commissioned artist Lewis Brownlie to draw12 of the buildings identifed in the review. His beautiful and detailed black and white line drawings are ideal for capturing the features of these key heritage buildings.
