Sydney Architecture Festival announces 2015 program, creative vision and four-day condensed format

The ninth annual Sydney Architecture Festival (#sydarchfest) returns in 2015 with new dates, a fresh vision and a condensed program presented from Friday 2 October until Monday 5 October, activating inner Sydney locations with a packed schedule of design and architecture inspired activities. In 2015, Archrival, a Sydney-based collective of young design creatives, in partnership with JOC Consulting, will take the reigns as the Festival Event Directors, marking the first time in the Festival’s history a directorship approach has been implemented.

“Architecture is a driver for city lifestyles to become more sustainable, connected and liveable. We wanted the Festival to capture this potential and broadcast it to a city undergoing massive change,” said Claire McCaughan, Co-Founder, Archrival.

The new format of a four-day Festival condenses the formerly 10-day long program into an action packed long weekend of talks, events, tours, competitions and activities. The program includes a mix of free to the public and ticketed events that will run from morning until late evening throughout the Festival at locations around inner Sydney.

Festival-goers are invited to participate in a diverse range of events including conversations about design and architecture; short films; food and music experiences; children’s activities and guided tours. This year’s Festival seeks to engage actively with social media, with each day of the Festival having a dedicated hashtag. The daily hashtags are: Day 1 #DesignSecrets; Day 2 #TheGoods; Day 3 #NewCity; and finishing with Day 4 #GoGlobal.
