Guided by the spirit of interwar modernity, we will trace a lazy path through the guts of Sydney from Anzac Memorial in Hyde Park to the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
Urban and architectural ideas that were originally imported from Europe or North America will be traced, the influence of distance, culture and technology as well as the local political, cultural and physical landscape discussed as well as the influence of modernity on the modern city.
Print and bring along the attached ticket for scanning. Photo ID also fine.
Please arrive at the Anzac Memorial Fountain (north side) 10 minutes prior to tour departure.
Tickets are transferrable and cancellable up to 72 hours before the event.
The tour is approximately 90 minutes long.
Whatever happens in regards to weather - we will walk! Bring a sun hat, umbrella, camera, sketch book and so on.
If for some reason the tour does not go ahead we will notify you at least 90 minutes prior to the tour by text message so a mobile number is required at checkout.

SAW: The Sydney Architecture Walks
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.
