AIUS NSW City Briefing
Killing Sydney - Author Elizabeth Farrelly in conversation with AIUS Chairman Michael Neustein
For NZ born architect and writer Elizabeth Farrelly, Sydney was love at first sight. She has called the city home ever since. Moreover, as both city councillor and writer she has influenced and reported the shape of the city for over thirty years.

Virtual Event - Link to be provided to those registered
Elizabeth's signature sharp, erudite and conversational style is plentifully evident in Killing Sydney. She imparts a message that is part-lovesong, part-warning about the home city she adores, covering the history of Sydney's soaring civic buildings and unique public spaces, its present reality of housing crisis and near-continual development – including the human and urban impact of ongoing projects WestConnex, NorthConnex and the F6 Extension, the Powerhouse relocation, the Packer casino, the light rail relocation, the sale of heritage buildings like the Sirius for private apartments, and Darling Harbour – and laying down the gauntlet for its protection as a green, beautiful, affordable and accessible heritage city.
