The 2015 Sydney Architecture Festival has announced inner-city architecture tours and ‘open homes’ with leading Australian architects, running from October 2–5.
September 16th, 2015
Three specially curated SAF Tours, being held Sunday October 4, will explore the reasons for change throughout the city, while uncovering a series of contemporary architectural gems.
The Architect’s House, a full day event presented from 10am until 5pm on Sunday 4 October, will offer a rare glimpse inside the homes of high-profile architects Amelia Holliday, Brian Zulaikha, Matthew Pullinger and Virginia Kerridge. The guided tour aims to share insight into the design and construction process that informed their own abode, with each architect ready to shed light on their personal design secrets. The Architect’s House guided tour takes visitors from Paddington, to Alexandria and Bronte, before finishing at the Zulaikha residence in Balmain.
Two other SAF tours led by the founder of Sydney Architecture Walks, Eoghan Lewis, will take place on Sunday, October 4. The first tour, The City – What Next?, covers ground in the inner-city and traces a route from Circular Quay to Haymarket. This tour concentrates on the crop of recently completed and a few upcoming contemporary architectural gems that are redefining Sydney. The second tour, Transformation and Regeneration of the Inner-City Suburbs, is an architectural exploration of the former working-class suburbs of Redfern, Surry Hills, Ultimo and Chippendale. Crossing political, cultural and economic territories, this tour will discuss the forces driving transformation and regeneration in these inner-city suburbs.
“Our SAF tours offer much more than straight forward architectural insight. We use architecture to open up other conversations; urban, political, social, cultural and ecological as we reveal the patterns and forces shaping Sydney. We explore ideas through architecture, decoding the city and offering stimulating new ways of thinking about and seeing Sydney,” says Eoghan Lewis.
