Artistic urbanism of Sydney (Australia)

Sydney is a city in southeastern Australia, located on the shores of the Tasman Sea. With an urban area comprising in 2014 a population of 4,840,600 inhabitants, Sydney is the most populous city in Australia.
In the twentieth century, Sydney became the economic heart of Australia and the main financial center of Oceania.
Sydney is a masterpiece of urbanism and a gigantic artistic museum: with its Sydney business center (called “The City”) which hosts many skyscrapers, its vast parks (such as Hyde Park, Royal Botanic Gardens, Luna Park, and Taronga Zoo …), Australia’s largest museums (the Australian Museum, the Sydney Museum and the New South Wales Art Gallery), ……

I present to you, my friends, some pictures of the beauty of Sydney:

MCA kaleidescope

The functionally titled ‘mechanised colour assemblage’ was one of the brighter experiences this 2015 Vivid. The installation uses colour machines which change shape in response to sound and 3D-mapping to project images onto the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA).The artists are Australia’s Perth-based Rebecca Baumann and French multidisciplinary art and design team Danny Rose comprising Sergio Carrubba, Paola Ciucci, Lucia Frigola and. Cédric Péri, with a soundtrack by Italy’s Emanuele de Raymondi.

Gehry’s UTS Business School

The 11 floor, 16,030 square metre building includes about 320,000 bricks from Bowral, custom made in five shapes and laid by hand. Not surprisingly since there’s nothing like it, some brickies made its shape into tattoos.

University building envy and competition for students in Sydney will enter the modern age once the Frank Gehry designed, $180 million UTS Business School’s Dr Chau Chak Wing Building opens in February 2015.

Customs House Flowers

Enchanted Sydney by Spinifex Group projected images of Sydney’s flora and fauna onto Customs House. The images morph from aquatic culture to flora and fauna and then to acorn-hoarding dwarves, one of whom escapes into space.

Norbert the nautilus

From the Vivid festival in Chatswood, this is a ‘Chinese lantern’ of Norbert the nautilus, a mollusc with a shell made of junkyard trash who leaves his black and white world of human refuse for love and adventure in the natural world (and the colour of Chatswood mall where he’d probably get eaten).

  1. Great capture of Sydney. There is a wonderful restaurant above Customs House canned ‘Cafe Sydney’ that I go to when I go to Sydney. It has spectacular views of the Bridge and Opera House.
