Event description

Description

This is a public presentation and discussion that will examine the work of the “Locating Agency” exhibition on display as part of the Sydney Design Festival. The exhibit features research on the urbanization of metropolitan Sydney and Parramatta as recently displayed at the Seoul Biennale 2017, produced by the NSW Government Architect (GANSW) and Sydney practice, Terroir.


This event is presented to public and practitioner audience from architecture, design, planning, development, and anyone interested in strategies for urban growth. Join a panel of speakers who will present their work and contextualize Sydney’s transformation in relation to regional, interstate, and international frameworks. Hosted at 1 Parramatta Square, this event will commence with refreshments on the roof terrace overlooking the city and Sydney Harbour beyond, followed by speaker presentations and a moderated panel discussion with audience Q&A.

Cities have been the engines of economic development and social change since the beginning of the modern era. Their growth and evolution can bring progress and prosperity, but it can also bring social disruption and environmental damage. For this reason, how cities are planned and designed is of vital importance to us all.

Considered in this light, architecture has a profound contribution to make to the urban quality that surrounds us every day: the pavements and parks, the roads and railways, the terraces and towers, offices and shops in which we live, work and play. With the pressures that come with a growing city, design must multi-task like never before. It must improve our open public space networks while delivering better infrastructure. It must respond to future needs while respecting our built past. It must enable technology to play its part while protecting our natural eco-systems.

Speakers to be announced closer to the date.
