Introducing – 100 Years of Innovation
In celebration of 100 years, we present a series of interviews with internationally renowned academics. We discuss the defining roles of architecture, design and planning in society over the last 100 years.
Episode 1 – Secret Life of a Degree
The Sydney Bachelor of Architecture degree has a long and lively history. It was open to men and women from its first offering in 1918, but the inclusion of women was controversial. In July 1972 a student strike shut down the school for two weeks, with students demanding the degree be remade.
Episode 2 – Becoming a Utopian
The utopian visions of architects, planners, philosophers and sociologists are important speculative projects. We take a deep dive into the idea of utopia with Professor Danilo Palazzo, who calls on us to become utopians.

Evelina Ozola is reimagining tactical urbanism in Latvia by co-building life size (1:1 scale) models of her urban designs in the street to communicate and test the design ideas with local communities.
