The 4th Sydney Architecture Festival invites residents to engage with the built environment with an event program that will feature an informative and entertaining program of architectural talks, exhibitions, films, outdoor architecture installations, boat, bicycle and walking tours, and children’s activities. The Festival closes with Sydney Open – the bi-annual opportunity for the public to see “behind the scenes” of some of our most interesting buildings not normally open to the public, including Barangaroo, the Capitol, the State theatre, Culwalla Barristers' Chambers and Google's premises at Pyrmont.

Events will be held in venues across the city including Customs House, Sydney City Council, the Museum of Sydney, the State Library, Object Gallery, Government House Sydney. Neighbourhood activities will allow a ‘local view' of Sydney architecture.

The festival runs from October 20 to November 7.

The program for Day 1 includes:

Festival Launch

GoA/University Installation - a temporary pavilion designed and constructed by students from recycled materials in the Customs House forecourt

The shape of things to come - Sydney in 2030 - exhibition at Customs House

Open Agenda exhibition - student competition at Customs House

OpenHaus: advertisements for architecture - design competition

The Sydney Architecture Festival is a joint venture between the Australian Institute of Architects (NSW Chapter) and the NSW Architects Registration Board.
