Sydney Architecture Walks
The practice offers architecture tours in Sydney, guided by architects, through the Sydney Architecture Walks.
Much of our understanding of people, place, architecture and construction has been gained through our public research project the Sydney Architecture Walks (SAW) and in particular studying the work of Opera House architect Jørn Utzon. This works for us in a conceptual as well as a literal sense but also serves to deepen our understanding of architecture in relation to the city and the projects that define and activate our public and private realms.
Eoghan founded the Sydney Architecture Walks in 2000, the same year he formed his first studio - Supple Design. The tours have been running in parallel with practice ever since and operate as the public side and quasi-research wing of practice.
Aimed at the level of the 'design-inclined' (we don't assume you know anything about architecture), conversations lurk beneath a guise of informality, each tour driven by a set of themes and threads that attempt to decode the city whilst stimulating new ways of thinking about and seeing Sydney. Trespassing across fields fiscal, political, environmental & cultural - SAW tours offer an interface between in-depth architectural knowledge and the wider design-conscious community. We want you to get stung by architecture!
We invite you to join us on a tour. It's a great way to meet, to talk architecture and get a sense of what motivates us and the ideas we hold dear. The SAW 1 - The City, Sydney or SAW 2 - Utzon tours are a great place to start!
