The Architecture Foundation in collaboration with the NSW Architects Registration Board is delighted to announce the three emerging architects from Sydney and the three UK practices who will be participating in the latest New Architects Exchange Programme taking place in London from 17 – 21 October 2011.

The programme will celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the Byera Hadley Travelling Scholarships and follows on from successful Architecture Foundation exchange programmes in Italy, Turkey, Norway, Poland, and Portugal.

The aim of these exchange programmes is to identify, exchange and promote the best new architects from both countries through developing networks, dialogue and cultural exchange that allow for the sharing of new ideas and new practices. 

Andrew Burns (Andrew Burns Architect), Matthew Chan (Scale Architecture) and Hannah Tribe (Tribe Studio Architects) will act as ambassadors for the architectural scene in Sydney whilst UK practices Studio OctopiWe Made That and Studio Meda will act as guides to the visiting architects, running a series of workshops / studio visits along with other networking opportunities.

The exchange will take the theme Every Day Extreme, highlighting the work of a rising generation of architects and practitioners who are responding to the pressing need to adapt our buildings and cities to meet new environmental pressures.

 A public lecture will be held on 20 October 2011 at 6pm giving those in the UK the unique opportunity to gain insight into some of the emerging voices on the Australian architecture scene.
