Running from the first of November, the Sydney Architecture Festival is a thriving 10-day annual celebration of architecture and design. The theme for this year’s festival is ‘Connections: The Making of a Great City,’ a concept which will inspire a diverse program of events.

Now in its eighth year, the sprawling festival will feature exhibitions, talks and public forums with distinguished architecture and design luminaries, children’s activities, film screenings, open days and architectural tours held at various locations throughout Sydney.

Amongst the many highlights of the festival program is a retrospective exhibition at the Museum of Sydney on the career of iconic Modernist architect Harry Seidler, a ferry cruise focusing on the bridges of Sydney Harbour and Parramatta River, and exclusive access to more than 50 architecturally significant buildings for Sydney Open. The work of acclaimed photojournalist David Moore will also feature in a free public exhibition at Customs House, in homage to Sydney’s Anzac Bridge.

With a range of interactive activities scheduled across the 10 days, the Sydney Architecture Festival aims to appeal to a broad audience of architecture and design enthusiasts.
