Event Details

Tour Summary.

A pedestrian artery for twenty thousand years; the ancient walking track from Circular Quay to the fresh water spring known as the Tank Stream is now Sydney's meandering George Street spine.

Tracing a route from Circular Quay to Sydney Town Hall, we will slalom down George and flirt with its public and private edges, trespassing across territory political, cultural, social as well as architectural. Charles Darwin's 1836 narrative along the same path will inflect our journey as we examine the city and reflect on Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore's transformative urban strategies.

We will focus on the defining urban and architectural elements of George Street including master works by Harry Seidler, Angelo Candalepas, Johnson Pilton Walker and FJMT.

Led by Benjamin Driver, urban designer at Hill Thalis Architecture & Urban Projects.

What Else.

This tour has been created for the 2017 Festival of Urbanism.

Depending on the group size we may hand out a wireless audio system so please arrive 10 minutes early.

We walk rain or shine, but if for some reason the tour does not go ahead, you will receive a full refund. In this instance we would notify you at least 90 minutes prior to the tour by text message so a mobile number is required when booking.

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.
