Come along to the public lecture showcasing the work of three young practices from Sydney in our New Architects Exchange Programme, Australia_UK.  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 presenting their work through and offering insight into the state of Australian architecture today.

This lecture forms part of the latest New Architects Exchange Programmes produced in collaboration with the NSW Architects Registration Board.  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. 

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.

The practices representing the UK in this exchange programme are: Studio OctopiWe Made That and Studio Meda.
