The 13th Sydney Architecture Festival is a week-long festival running from 11-17th November 2019. This year’s theme is Making. Housing. Affordable.

At its core, the practice of architecture is a response to the human need for shelter.The Festival extends this position to the simple claim that everyone deserves a safe and comfortable place to live. In the past hundred years or so the challenge of housing has been intensified by the increasing complexity and density of urban life.

This year’s Festival asks: How can our expertise and resources be brought together to provide proper housing for all the communities of Sydney, and what currently stops this from happening?
