Explore what makes our buildings great over four days of talks, tours and workshops

This year’s Sydney Architecture Festival will focus on preserving Australia’s beloved monuments over four days of talks, tours, workshops and exhibitions that celebrate our city’s architectural highlights. For the 12th edition of the festival, the Sydney Opera House – one of the most recognisable structures in the world and a UNESCO World Heritage listed site – will be the fitting festival hub.

The Festival will begin with the Australian International Architecture Symposium – a full-day event at the Art Gallery of NSW where the country’s leading practitioners will discuss contemporary Australian design and their developing projects. Other highlights include a panel discussion exploring the history of the Opera House for its 45th anniversary, a talk on ethics and economic growth, as well as a hands-on design and architecture workshop.

Speakers and panelists across the program include award-winning architect Peter Stutchbury and ABC journalist Annabel Crabb. Renowned architectural advisor and author Karen Stein will present the World Architecture Day talk on October 1.  

Keep an eye on the Festival program for all the event details.
