Sydney Walking Tour: Underground and Over the Top: Infrastructure as Art, Landscape and Urban Heritage

  • *Meeting place made available with registration (map)

Sydney is in the midst of an infrastructure building boom. Such projects are highly contested because they remake the city at a landscape scale. Individual buildings come and go, but major transport projects restructure patterns of movement, dwelling and work. As such they are both drivers of the urbanisation process as well as creators of persistent and familiar places in our everyday lives. Led by Cameron Logan and including an artist's talk by Chris Fox, creator of Interloop. This tour will raise questions about the intersections of creativity, design and conservation in the making and remaking of the city, its historical infrastructures and valued landscapes.
