SCCI Architecture Hub 2018

Fri 12th October, 2018 – Sun 21st October, 2018
Sherman Centre for Culture and Ideas
20 Goodhope St, Paddington
The 10-day program deep dives into modern architecture and its intersections with culture, art and literature.

The Sherman Centre for Culture and Ideas (SCCI) was created to facilitate sophisticated, intellectual engagement with the creative industries. Its inaugural “hub” in April this year was fashion focussed, and considered the current industry and its cultural significance through a series of sold-out talks, panel discussions and workshops.

The first SCCI Architecture Hub program will run from October 12 to 21, and cover seven key themes: future architecture, ethical architecture, architecture words, pavilions, art and architecture, library architecture, and women and architecture.

A line-up of notable international and local experts will explore each idea, its place in contemporary practice and its implications for future built environments.

Keynote speakers include Japanese architects Kengo Kuma (Tokyo 2020 Olympic Stadium) and Ryue Nishizawa (Sydney Modern), a Pritzker Prize winner; Indian new modernist Gurjit Matharoo; and Iraqi-American artist Michael Rakowitz (the Fourth plinth, Trafalgar Square).

There are also architecture-related films screening, a tour of Barangaroo, an architecture workshop for kids, and more.
