The Sherman Centre for Cultural Ideas (SCCI) is bringing together a host of renowned international architects and designers for this inaugural event. The ten-day program will explore contemporary issues and initiatives surrounding architecture and its interplay with social, cultural and technological development.
Held across SCCI, the Museum of Applied Arts and Science, Art Gallery of NSW, Barangaroo and the Golden Age Cinema, the program will feature keynote talks, panel discussions, and architecture films, tours and workshops. Prominent guests will include award-winning Japanese architects Kengo Kuma and Ryue Nishizawa, innovative modern Indian architect Gurjit Matharoo and Iraqi-American conceptual artist Michael Rakowitz.
A discussion about social justice through urban design is set to be a program highlight, alongside talks about the experiences of women in the industry, public art and the future of architecture.
