Open Agenda Exhibition – begins 19th October 2011

The exhibition features three 2011 winning proposals by Rory Hyde (RMIT, 2005), Nick Sargent and Mark Leong (Victoria University, Wellington 2005), Daniel Fink (USYD, 2009)

Now in its second year, 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.
