Time Out says

Discover how built environments affect our lives, from impacts on justice and politics to art, health, commerce and education

The Sherman Centre for Cultural Ideas (SCCI) is bringing together more than 50 renowned local and international architects and professionals from other intersecting industries for the second iteration of this architecture festival. The ten-day program will explore contemporary issues and initiatives surrounding architecture and its interplay with social, cultural and technological development.

The program will feature more than 30 themed events, from keynote talks to panel discussions, film screenings, tours and workshops. You’ll be able to investigate the role of architecture in our criminal system; explore the social, political and historical impacts of brutalist styles; look into the mental and physical health impacts of architecture; and understand the relationship between a city’s urban design and commerce. 

A few big international names making an appearance at these events include award-winning French architect Odile Decq, director of the Israel Museum Ido Bruno, and Behrouz Boochani, who is an Iranian-Kurdish author and human rights defender currently detained on Manus Island (he will be joining talks via a live video link).

Most events will be free, but require booking with a credit card for confirmation of your attendance. They're taking place across venues including the Museum of Sydney, the Police and Justice Museum, Eternity Playhouse and Lang Road Pavilion, plus the home turf at SCCI.
