The Shape of Things to Come - Sydney in 2030

The year is 2030. The architecture students of 2010 are now the established practitioners of today.

Key planning, transportation, environmental and cultural changes have been implemented.  The metro carriages are due for replacement, Central Park’s tri-generation plant is operational, the new broadband network is reaching peak speeds of 9 gigabits per second, and the city’s population has just exceeded 6 million.  Work has begun on the Sustainable Sydney 2060 plan...

Using recent projects by architecture students from UNSW, UTS and the University of Sydney, along with key visions included in City of Sydney's Sustainable Sydney 2030 plan, the exhibition imagines a possible future for our city.  We follow in the footsteps of imaginary city dwellers as they explore Sydney in 2030 through a variety of graphic and video media. 

Commissioned by the City of Sydney and curated by Mark Szczerbicki, the exhibition will be shown at Customs House in conjunction with the 2010 Sydney Architecture Festival.
