Architecture & Design

Take part in our newly launched year-long architecture and design program, putting you at the heart of Sydney’s changing building and spaces.

Culminating in our flagship architectural event, Sydney Open, our expanded program includes onsite architectural activations, talks, tours and special events, offering visitors the chance to hear from experts and go behind-the-scenes of even more of Sydney’s unique spaces.

Join us in celebrating Sydney’s architecture and design.


Urban Explorers

Urban Explorers is a series of new tours inviting visitors to explore some of Sydney’s unique and intriguing sites and buildings.

Architecture is more than just built form. Buildings and the spaces between them – such as parks, roads, tunnels and gardens – play an intricate part in how we live in and experience our city.

The Urban Explorers tours offer behind-the-scenes experiences led by those who know the sites best. Guided by experts in architecture, heritage and history , they will take place each month, and each at a different location. They will include unusual urban adventures – taking visitors to tunnels, towers and other hidden spaces – privileged access beyond the gates of private homes, and guided tours. They will take place throughout Sydney and cover a range of themes from industrial heritage and forgotten sites to contemporary new precincts and studios. 

Tour numbers are strictly limited and run on a first come, first served basis, with SLM Members offered pre-sale benefits. Become a member today.
