Event description

Description

This walking tour will highlight the development of the University of Sydney campus, beginning in the 1850s, as an exemplary instance of colonial landscape planning, architecture and institutional formation. We will note the various efforts to build upon and recast its institutional identity over the succeeding 170 years by examining a series of buildings and sites. Stops on the tour will point to key themes in the development of architecture in Sydney and the relationship of those themes to the wider settler colonial project in Australia.
