Walter and Eliza Hall Institute

Last week I went to Open House Melbourne, after missing last year’s event. The first building I visited was Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research. Although it might not look it, pictured here is the older of the joined buildings on the site in Parkville. It’s amazing what some new cladding and a refurbishment can do. The institute was established in 1915 by Eliza Hall, shortly after the death of her husband, Walter Russell Hall. Hosting more than 750 medical researchers, it’s the oldest medical research institute in Australia.
