AAA Activities to Recommence on 13 June

Dear Friends of the AAA Community

We are pleased to announce the recommencement of AAA’s activities on 13 June.  Come and enjoy an outdoor walking tour of Middle Cove located on Sydney’s lower north shore and discover how architects designed their houses to interact with this amazing landscape and bush.  On the same day, you can also experience a leisurely two-hour Sydney City walk visiting city landmarks such as Australia Square and Conservatorium of Music.

Due to Covid-19, the Australian Architecture Association (AAA) had to temporarily suspend all of our activities in late March and have found it extremely difficult to keep operating with the majority of our revenue gone.  We have received some contributions and really appreciate the support of our AAA members and friends, however, AAA still needs your help, so please consider donating to our Pandemic Appeal which would make a huge difference to our future.

DONATE NOW

All care is being taken with safety measures on our walks and at our events which include limiting numbers, social distancing and sanitisers.

In the meantime, take care, stay safe and look forward to seeing you soon.

Warmest regards

Your Support is Crucial to AAA

Dear AAA Members and Friends

There has been so much happening since we wrote to you last week due to the COVID-19 Crisis.  With new restrictions now in place here, AAA still remains committed to staying connected to all of you in our architectural Community .    

I would like to share a positive story written by Ben Gerstel, AAA Vice-President/architect, about one of the amazing houses we visited recently on our ever popular residential coach tour.   AAA’s residential tours are extremely popular with members and friends and the Seed house by James Fitzpatrick was one of 5 houses we opened on the day. Architects Sam Crawford, David Boyle, Ben Peake and Manuelle Schelp shared their ideas and solutions to the design/renovation of their residential project on the day. It was a fabulous day, shared with likeminded people. 

We want to be able to keep offering our residential tours once this crisis is over but it may take many months, so your support today is crucial for AAA’s survival through this world wide health crisis, click here to help us during these uncertain times.
