Event Details

Description.

An insiders tour of Sydney with a two-wheeled, architectural twist. 

Years ago, the working-class suburbs immediately south and west of the city like Surry Hills, Redfern and Chippendale were associated in the bourgeois imagination with pestilence, poverty and crime. Over recent decades, these suburbs have been undergoing massive change with a steady influx of squatters, students, artists and other creative types who have built a thriving contemporary art, architecture and design scene. Sure enough, the money soon followed. 

This is no touristic join-the-dots with a sound track of jingoistic facts. Its an exploration of a city by stealth, the route and conversation structured around a number of contemporary architectural projects, contested sites and politically charged themes.

Organizer

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.
