- SAW Bike Tour 02-
- bicycle tour - Drifting along Sydney's formerly industrial western edge we will explore the stretch of land between Darling Harbour and Chippendale, the part of Sydney undergoing the most dramatic of changes. It is also the strip where the sharpest oppositions are playing out between memory and newness; economy and politics; inspiration and corruption opening up conversations big and small. The route and the conversation will be structured around a number of contemporary architectural and urban projects, contested sites and politically charged themes. These include recent headline projects by Frank Gehry, Jean Nouvel, Durbach Block Jaggers and DCM. However, you will also discover transformative small 'a' architecture by some of Sydney's local heroes like William Smart, CHROFI, Tonkin Zulaikha Greer, Aspect, FJMT, Silvester Fuller and others. This tour is an exploration of these gritty, rapidly changing and completely mixed up inner-city suburbs, weaving a very different narrative through Sydney.
