Open Agenda is an annual competition aimed at supporting a new generation of experimental architecture. Open to recent graduates, Open Agenda is focused on developing the possibilities of design research in architecture and the built environment.

An initiative of the School of Architecture at UTS, this national competition is intentionally broad in its scope, and dedicated to fostering new discussions on architecture in the public realm.Three proposals will be awarded seed funding of $2000 each for development towards a publication and a public exhibition in Sydney in 2011. The three teams or individuals will also have the opportunity to present a public lecture on their work in Sydney as part of the UTS public lecture series. The winners will be featured in an edition of AR.
