Sydney is currently a hotbed of regeneration activity. From Barangaroo to Green Square, to the emerging plans for The Bays Precinct and Central to Eveleigh, our city is transforming previously underutilised tracts of urban land. But why?
Regenerating Sydney, Why Now? will draw on expertise from some of the foremost global urban
regeneration projects and local social perspectives to address Sydney’s shifting landscape. The forum will consider why urban regeneration is occurring, what it hopes to achieve, and what Sydney can learn from global best practice. Join us in discussing the future of our city.
The panel will feature Nicholas Brooke, CEO of the Hong Kong Harbour Commission, Jackie Sadek, CEO of UK Regeneration, and Luca Belgiorno-Nettis , founder of the New Democracy Foundation, amongst others from around the world.
Since 2000, The University of Technology, Sydney’s Zunz lecture series has stimulated high-quality public discussion around broad community issues relating to engineering and information technology. The lecture, sponsored by Arup, was named in honour of Sir Jack Zunz, who led Arup’s design team on the Sydney Opera House, and whose approach to engineering and education is an inspiration to engineers and the Australian community.
