Tall Tales of Sydney’s Skyline
Discover the influence of an ever-expanding international cohort of architects designing Sydney’s newest buildings to uncover how cutting-edge architecture is re-shaping the harbour city.
From Balmain’s historic wharf, look back across the water towards the towering western end of the CBD to gain an overall perspective on Sydney’s rapidly changing skyline. Armed with this wide panoramic lens, then cross Darling Harbour by ferry to Barangaroo Wharf to gaze upwards to appreciate these substantial structures from below.
Delve into the little-known controversies that often follow new developments and appreciate the designs of the world’s most renowned architects from up close, including Renzo Piano and Wilkinson Eyre, contrasted with designs by Australian studios competing on an increasingly global stage.
