Sydney Urbanistas was excited to be part of this year's Sydney Architecture Festival as one of 10 people making up The 'One Forties' - influential Sydneysiders who can create headlines in 140 characters. What was great was that of the ten twitter ambassadors, seven (including Urbanistas) were women. Just another way we are amplifying the voice of women.
The four days of the festival was about celebrating Sydney's creative capacity - something that continues to grow. Design secrets behind the building blocks of our communities were shared; experts, younger people; locals and national leaders shared a call for better design, and better architecture and we saw, shared, posted, participated, challenged and chose from the options we heard. A great success and a big congratulations to the Festival’s inaugural Event Directors Lucy Humphrey and Claire McCaughan of Archrival (@archrival_syd) and John O Callaghan (@John_OCal) for such a great event. We can't wait till next year.
