Event Details


Getting beyond the post–card view of the city and its two shimmering icons, Harbourings reveals Sydney at her rawest and most spectacular, her most self–conscious and most corrupt. The route is diverse, spectacular and full of surprising recent projects as well as gritty historical reminders of the cities industrial-maritime past. 

Beginning with Circular Quay, where the powerful forces of commerce are held back from the harbour by the Cahill Expressway – we will discuss Utzon's vision for Circular Quay and wander through the newly completed Museum of Contemporary Art.

A number of contemporary architectural and urban insertions in The Rocks will be discussed including the radical Sirius Apartment building by Tao Gofers and Ed Lippmann's KGV Sports Hall. Our focus will be the breathtaking early 20th Century Walsh Bay Finger Wharves, a family of industrial structures that extend out into Sydney's harbour. They are amongst the largest timber structures ever built, now reimagined as a residential/cultural precinct.

SAW: The Sydney Architecture Walks

We are architects and the city is our project.

On bike and on foot we explore ideas through architecture offering an interface between in-depth architectural knowledge and the wider design-conscious community.

Each route is driven by certain themes and threads and attempts to decode the city whilst proposing new ways of thinking about and seeing Sydney.

Our tours are aimed at you, the enthusiast. We don't assume you know anything about architecture, though we hope you are interested in the city's underside; in the ideas and patterns that generate.

We want you to get stung by architecture and begin to understand why buildings and cities are the way they are.
