Event Details

A thorough introduction to Sydney, this walking tour will reveal the patterns and forces that shape the city

 

 

Description

 

Through a process of decoding and unravelling the city, we will explore Sydney in terms of the forces that have shaped it over time - ecological, political, economic, cultural - and by extension shaped many of the architecture and design outcomes.

 

We will focus on the defining urban and architectural elements of the city centre and George Street, including master works by FJMT, Ingenhoven Architects, Denton Corker Marshall, Harry Seidler and Pritzker-Prize Laureate Renzo Piano

 

Your Guide

 

Benjamin Driver is an urban designer with a passion for the way cities are made, how we live sustainably within them and how they are accessed and shared in a democratic manner. Having practiced with Hill Thalis Architecture + Urban Projects for more than a decade, he has a keen and critical eye on the public domain and the way in which architecture, politics and society more generally contributes to and exists within this immense resource.

Sydney Architecture Walks

We are architects and we conduct tours of Sydney on foot and on bicycle.

Each tour is a straightforward and jargon-free story-telling journey that explores ideas through architecture, offering an interface between in-depth architectural knowledge and the wider design-conscious community.

We want you to understand the how and why of the city whilst we explore and unpack Sydney’s most provocative and daring projects; works of contemporary architecture, public art and landscape that inspire and delight but also projects that reveal something of Sydney's grimy pulse.
