AAA Short Black: Visits Camperdown Cemetery

1808 c1

This weekend the Australian Architecture Association will hold a Short Black: Architects In Their Space Talk. Featuring one of the most unusual public spaces in Sydney - the walled landscape that is Camperdown Cemetery. On Saturday 8 September enjoy a talk and guided tour with the architect Hector Abrahams.

Created for burials in 1847, in just over twenty five years the cemetery was full and closed to burials. Over the subsequent 140 years it has developed a cultural profile of an ancient site, becoming the site of a major church, a graveyard of architectural relics, dramatically enclosed by its high stone wall in about 1950.

The tour will be led by Hector Abrahams, a former trustee and architect for the cemetery, who will attempt to explain something of the strategy for retaining its special qualities. He will tell the story of its history, celebrations, conservation of materials, stewardship and ecology.

ABOUT HECTOR ABRAHAMS ARCHITECTS

Hector Abrahams Architects (HAA) is a Sydney based architectural practice recognised for their work on heritage projects, masterplanning and adaptive re-use.

Their portfolio includes work on public, commercial, educational, residential and church buildings of all sizes and styles.

The philosophy driving their designs is based on the understanding that old buildings have to be understood, kept well and made liveable and workable for people in today’s world. They believe that additions and new buildings should engage seamlessly with their surroundings.

TOUR DETAILS:

Location: Meet underneath the fig tree, inside the gates, 189 Church Street, Newtown NSW 2042
Please Note:
Closed-in shoes must be worn on the tour.
Absolutely no parking is permitted in the cemetery.
Date: Saturday 8 September 2018
