    The Sydney Architecture Festival has revealed a preview of its 2016 program.

    For a decade the Sydney Architecture Festival has celebrated design, architecture and the built environment through events, talks, tours and exhibitions, and this year will be no different.

    In 2016 the four-day festival, running between 30 September and 3 October, will feature a global address by Indy Johar, director of WikiHouse and co-founder of UK-based practice Architecture 00 among a number of other exciting events.
