EXPLORE CHIPPENDALE ARCHITECTURE WALKING TOUR AND LUNCH

BY Chippendale Creative Precinct | 08-Aug-2017
Join Chippendale Creative Precinct and the University of Sydney School of Architecture, Design and Planning Alumni Association as we explore four iconic Chippendale structures at the forefront of contemporary design. In ten years, Chippendale has transformed from an impoverished conurbation to Sydney’s Cultural Mecca. This extraordinary metamorphosis was championed by innovative minds and bold choices made by Chippendale’s internationally acclaimed architects and developers. Learn from those who worked closely with Pritzker Prize winning architects Jean Nouvel, Frank Gehry and Sir Norman Foster to develop Sydney’s most striking new structures.
We invite alumni from the University of Sydney and their friends to learn about Frank Gehry’s first Australian building, the iconic Dr. Chau Chak Wing School of Business at UTS, with a talk by the building’s General Manager Craig Lord who witnessed the construction of this Sydney landmark. Following Craig, CHROFI's John Choi will break down the design of the sun-soaked boardwalk and cycle-path The Goods Line and deeper into Chippendale, learn details about the construction of Central Park’s mesmerizing sculpture Halo from co-creator and artist Jenny Turpin of Turpin + Crawford.

Next up, hear from Ben Green, director of Tzannes the company responsible for the structurally stunning and environmentally exquisite Central Park Mall. To complete the tour, head Architect Tim Greer from Tonkin Zulaikha Greer will join us to deliver insight into the company's development of every foodie’s favourite strip, Kensington Street.

Chippendale Creative Precinct is excited to collaborate with the University of Sydney School of Architecture, Design and Planning Alumni Association for the first time on this exciting tour. Through this partnership, CCP aims to celebrate the creative spirit of Chippendale and showcase Chippendale’s world class architecture to the University of Sydney alumni network and beyond.

After the tour, indulge in famous dumplings from Taiwan’s own Din tai Fung, Central Park. We invite you to relax, eat, drink and be merry after a fascinating tour over delicate dumplings and wine amidst the greenery at the sustainable Central Park Living Mall.
