2014 Sydney Architecture Festival closes

For 10 days in November - from the Man O’ War Steps at Sydney Opera House, to Sydney’s heart of Parramatta – we continue to explore the architecture of our great city through exhibitions, installations, kid’s activities, forums, talks and tours.

Thank you to the more than 3,000 people who got involved in this year’s Sydney Architecture Festival. Thanks to some of you who liked, followed or retweeted one of the 30+ different events along the way – helping to take architecture out of the boardrooms and studios, to those who experience it first hand.

And while the Festival may have ended, the conversations and ideas haven’t. Stay in touch with those we met and worked with, follow progress on projects they spoke of and get involved through your local community, council or with architects in your local area. Follow @ArchInsights or @ArchitectureNSW throughout the year. We’ll be posting images in coming days from the highlights of this year’s festival.  

Thank you to our event, media and venue supporters, our festival photographer, Stephen Pierce and army of wonderful volunteers.

The Colloquium comes at an opportune time for Sydney as it continues to grow. Government is investing in significant infrastructure; heavy and light rail, roads and a new airport.
