Since 2004, our program of walks, talks and tours enhanced public understanding and appreciation of architecture. We have conducted over 1200 walks, about 50 talks and opened 250 homes for the Australian public.
Our weekly architecture walks OPEN architecture to everyone. Conducted by our dedicated volunteers, we explain architectural design with minimum jargons so everyone can understand the thought process behind the pieces of architecture around us. Our core group of 25 trained volunteer guides are passionate about architecture and form the backbone of our association.
Our Black Talks, Short Black Talks and other special talks bring local and international architects to our capital cities, OPENing our audiences' minds to the lastest trends in architectural design. Our past speakers include international Pritzker Prize Laureates as well as award winning local architects.
Our Bus Tours and At Home with the Architect series OPEN private homes to the public. Not only one can experience the well designed spaces, we also have the architect there most of the time to show our participants around and explain the design.
Our target is to raise over $10,000. This will help us continue our current program of walks, talks and tours for the general public in 2016. If we can raise $20,000, we will be able to expand our program in NSW and other states. Since 2014 we have developed a small program with the assistance of a passionate volunteer architect in Victoria, however, we need your support to sustain this program and grow in more states.
