The 3rd City: International Festival of Landscape Architecture

13 October 2017 @ 8:00 am - 14 October 2017 @ 5:00 pm

$599 – $799

The 3rd City is the future city, a postulation to be mapped, tested and debated. The 2017 International Festival of Landscape Architecture welcomes you into the 3rd City, to explore its dimensions and imagine its landscape potential. The 3rd City will take us beyond post-industrial urbanisation to ask what is necessary and what is possible for future cities, their people, their ecologies, their territories and spaces. Join us in Sydney for a two day journey through the 3rd City, where a mix of keynote speakers and short presentations will challenge us to engage with the diverse facets of the emergent 3rd City.

This year’s line-up showcases a lively and engaging range of speakers, with the Festival Creative Directorate committed to delivering a program that challenges us to engage with the diverse facets of the emergent 3rd City. Speakers include:
