This month the Powerhouse Museum presents Sydney Design. Taking place from Saturday 16 to Sunday 24 August, this years festival theme explores changes in the way we design, produce and consume. As a festival partner the Australian Architecture Association (AAA) is offering special festival prices for a number of its guided walking tours, where you can learn how design has evolved and changed.
Discover some of the key buildings of the city centre on the City Walk, or experience some of the rich collection of public art in the Sculpture Walk. Gain an overview of how architecture and the city have developed over 200 years during the Walk Through Time, or rove further afield and delight in a garden suburb on the Castlecrag Walking Tour.
