Industry events

Opportunities to network, share ideas and collaborate
We host events throughout the year to connect our students and academics with industry and the public to share ideas and celebrate collaborations, research and professional developments.

Key events

The Sydney School of Architecture, Design and Planning hosts regular exhibitions in the Tin Sheds Gallery, the only gallery in Australia dedicated to fostering and advancing public debate about the role of architecture, design and planning in contemporary society through the production of research-led exhibitions, publications and related activities.

The gallery provides a platform for projects that inspire the imagination and ignite critical dialogue, addressing the myriad forces that shape the built and virtual environment.

Exhibition opening nights are a great opportunity for industry guests to connect with our students and academics, and contribute to the broader discourse on local and international architecture, urban and design culture. Follow our events calendar or sign up to our mailing list to find out about upcoming exhibitions and opening nights.

The Wilkinson Centenary Lecture series is named in honour of Professor Leslie Wilkinson, the first appointed Chair of Architecture at the University of Sydney in 1918.

The series features internationally renowned speakers sharing ideas - provocative, speculative and inspiring, addressing the global responsibilities for practitioners and critical thinkers within the fields of architecture, design and urbanism.

Design @ Dusk is a talk series brought to you by the Design research group. At each talk, industry, students and staff come together for three informal, inspiring and fast-paced talks exploring the possibilities for design to affect change.

Every semester, we invite industry guests to a dedicated career networking session. This gives our students an opportunity to connect with future employers before they graduate and is a great way for companies to meet our brightest students in an informal setting.

Our annual graduate exhibitions showcase the highest quality of student work, and have been expanding in size and quality every year. The exhibition is considered the highlight of the academic year and the built and digital environment industry social calendar.

Together with the highly regarded exhibition publication, these works display the intellectual, technical, socially responsible explorations of the next generation of architects, designers and urban planners.

Not only an event of educational significance, the opening night is a joyful celebration of the achievements and unwavering dedication of our students.
