Shape of Things to Come Exhibition


October 25th, 2010

With talks, exhibitions, tours and films on offer around Sydney, the 2010 Sydney Architecture Festival encourages anyone and everyone to engage in the city’s diverse architecture.

From now until 7th November you can step inside Customs House and travel to the future world of 2030, where Sydney’s population has exceeded six million.

Apparently 20 years from now, the metro carriages are due for replacement, Central Park’s tri-generation plant is operational and the new broadband network is reaching peak speeds of nine gigabytes per second.

This exhibition, ‘The Shape of Things to Come – Sydney in the Year 2030’, showcases the recent projects by architecture students from three Sydney Universities: UNSW, UTS and the University of Sydney.

With the visions included in City of Sydney’s Sustainable Sydney 2030 plan, this display predicts the future in the form of graphic and video media as we follow in the footsteps of imaginary Sydneysiders and experience life 20 years from now.

Other highlights during the festival include: an international architecture film night, lecture by international expert on ‘living architecture’ and the use of green roofs, and ‘Architecture on Show’, a one-day festival on architecture and ideas.
