Controversial from the start, the development of Barangaroo has been the subject of continuous planning changes and deals between the State Government and the private sector developers. It has been shaped by seven premiers (Coalition 4 to ALP 3) and seven planning ministers, some serving more than once. The original, international competition winning scheme, of which Philip was one of the authors, was abandoned in favour of an evolving design yielding ever more floor space and hence developer revenue to the State. So how has it turned out so far? What problems are still to be faced? What if anything can be changed for the good at this late stage? Philip, whose views on the development are probably well known, will explore the history of the project, its key shaping factors and his view about the future of the area.
Philip Thalis is Professor of Practice in Architecture at UNSW’s Faculty of Arts, Design and Architecture. He has been a practising architect and urban designer for over 30 years. His favoured area of work is apartment buildings for which he and his firm have won many awards. He and colleague Peter John Cantrill are the authors of a wonderful compendium of public architecture plans for which they received a special AIA award for writing and architectural criticism. Philip was a councillor of the City of Sydney for the four year term preceding the 2021 elections.
AIUS AGM will follow the talk at approximately 6.15pm.
