Sydney versus Melbourne is a discussion series that looks at the dynamics of architecture in both cities. This is not a battle about which city has better buildings or better public spaces. Everybody already knows that Melbourne has a better civic realm. The lecture series is based on the premise that the most interesting recent periods in architecture have occurred when there were substantial differences in the approach of these two cities. Melbourne’s extravagant postmodernism, Sydney’s radical minimalism, Melbourne’s flamboyant parametricism, and Sydney’s sensible low-techism – all these styles opposed each other and pushed the boundaries of the discipline. Sibling battle out against Trias at UTS as part of this lecture series on October 19.
