Event Details

Description

Sydney’s central business district from Martin Place down to Circular Quay changed dramatically after World War 11. We examine many of the buildings in the cbd and trace the development of modernism and the high rise tower. From Harry Seidler’s iconic Australia Square tower that dominated the Sydney skyline when it was completed in 1970 the tour explores the most exciting free-standing buildings of the late twentieth century, including the British architect, Sir Norman Foster’s Deutsche Bank Place a recent addition to Sydney’s skyline.

We also look at buildings that have had to adapt to heritage items, such as the cantilevered Governor Phillip Tower by DCM that protects 19th century terrace houses, or the ingenious excavation beneath the Botanic Gardens, by architects Jackson Dyke, to provide more classrooms for the Conservatorium of Music.
