Designing a Capital
Discover the iconic architecture of Australia’s capital city, from Burley Griffin’s visionary conception of Canberra through to Brutalist and cutting-edge contemporary designs for public galleries and museums.
With expert guidance from tour leader Anthony Burke, UTS professor of architecture, explore the birth of Australian architecture, including the Griffins’ urban plans to the mid-century works of Enrico Taglietti, Roger and Anthony Pegrum and more.
Admire civic designs by Harry Seidler and Pier Luigi Nervi, and outstanding national monuments such as Richard Johnson and Graeme Dix’s work at the National Portrait Gallery. Enjoy fine food and wine and rediscover the vibrant cultural life of our national capital.
