Sydney Architecture Festival 2012


24 October 2012 - 4 November 2012

The Annual Sydney Architecture Festival turns everyone's focus to the city's architecture and aims to engage the public in exploring aspects of the built environment.The Sydney Architecture Festival is about understanding Sydney and imagining the future of our city through its urban and built environment. SAF invites wide participation in dialogues about the future of our metropolis.

The 2012 Sydney Architecture Festival theme, Beyond Boundaries will encourage attendees to form connections across the city, encouraging a mode of celebrating, enjoying and investigating architecture that is outward focussed and collaborative.

One of the first major event of the Festival will be our Black Talk by internationally renowned green architect Ken Yeang on Thursday, 25 October.  While the Sydney Talk is a Sydney Architecture Festival event, he will also be talking in Melbourne on the following day.  For more information and to secure your ticket click here.
