The AAA Wishes You a Merry Christmas

1712 a0

The Australian Architecture Association would like to wish our wonderful supporters and volunteers a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. We've had another eventful year and remain committed to continuing to make architecture and design accessible for everyone.

This year we opened the doors on some fantastic houses, with our series 'At Home With the Architect' and our AAA Residential Bus Tours.

We've continued to expand on our series of architectural walking tours, adding the Woollahra Walk to our program and look forward to continuing to reveal even more architectural delights next year.

We would like to extend our thanks everyone who has joined our tours. We've enjoyed meeting you and hope we will see you again in the New Year.

The AAA would particularly like to thank the architects, designers and clients who have graciously shared their homes and their enthusiasm for design.

A deeply felt thankyou to our financial supporters - our loyal AAA members and sponsors Austral, Universal Magazines and Natspec. We've also partnered with some fantastic organisations this year, such as Sydney Indesign, MAAS and eLearning. To those who donated to our annual fundraising campaign, Keep the Doors Open On Architecture 2017, your support ensures that we can continue to help people understand the value of good design and how it shapes our cities.

To our AAA volunteers, your commitment to sharing architecture and design continues to be an inspiration, thankyou for your support this year.

Have a happy and safe season everyone.

Best wishes from the Australian Architecture Association.

A delicious lunch at a restaurant is provided as part of the tour and you'll enjoy the chance to relax with fellow design enthusiasts, discussing what you've seen.
