THE SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME – SYDNEY IN THE YEAR 2030

The year is 2030, and the city’s population has just exceeded 6 million. The metro carriages are due for replacement, Central Park’s tri-generation plant is operational and the new broadband network is reaching peak speeds of 9 gigabytes per second.

Using recent projects by architecture students from UNSW, UTS and the University of Sydney, along with key visions included in City of Sydney’s Sustainable Sydney 2030 plan, we follow in the footsteps of imaginary city dwellers as they explore Sydney in 2030 through a variety of graphic and video media.

Featuring works by UTS Students: Joshua Harrex, Nora Niasari, Andrew Southwood-Jones, Luke Durack, Linda Bennett, Ashley Dennis, Tristan Davison, Jacqui Bokor, Michael Ford, Louise Griffin, Luke Novotny, Peter Ung, Georgina Blix
