"STREET WORKS is a competition to explore the possibilities of free and creative uses of public space. An initiative of the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA) NSW, STREET WORKS invites you to re-imagine underutilised spaces in the City of Sydney as innovative, sustainable and dynamic temporary public places that will bring people together in unique ways."
Cities around the world are moving toward installing little interventions that reclaim under-utilised spaces and build creative and engaging places that invite public participation in urban life. An initiative of the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA) NSW, STREET WORKS brings this global approach to Sydney.
Landscape architects, architects, artists designers, musicians, performers, digital media artists and other creative professionals from complementary fields are invited to imagine new city places and submit a proposal for a temporary installation that builds on the aspirations of City of Sydney's Sustainable Sydney 2030. Places should be dynamic, innovative and sustainable.
An exhibition will be hosted during the Sydney Architecture Festival to showcase all STREET WORKS entries, highlighting the range of creative ideas to form places for people, as well as promote dialogue as to the city we wish to inhabit.
