The Office of the Victorian Government Architect (OVGA) works with all government departments to achieve long term community value for Victoria’s capital projects. We advise and advocate for high quality in all types of public buildings and spaces.
Our independent voice continues to remind government that ‘design as legacy’ helps define Victoria as a place that is vibrant, economically thriving, healthy, sustainable, loved by its citizens, great to live in and visit.
We have significant responsibility to ensure change in our built environment is neverdictated purely by economics, but is always overlaid by deep considerations about the quality and long term impact of the places we build, and concern for the community for whom we build.
Our guidance helps steer Victoria towards outcomes in our built environment that have, or will, become part of the heart and soul of our state.
