The Sydney Architecture Walks
We are friends, we are architects and designers and we love cities; especially Sydney. Since 2000 we have been sharing our passion and expertise through an evolving family of public and private tours on foot and on bicycle – seven carefully crafted urban narratives hidden beneath a guise of informality.
The content of our tours is historically informed, our context contemporary. If a work of architecture addresses the world in a sustainable way, we draw attention to it. If it provokes we take note. Like detectives gathering evidence in an unfamiliar landscape we tell the stories and explain the concepts behind the concrete shells, glass skirts and sandstone facades that define Sydney.
Through its architecture Sydney’s story unfolds.
Meet the Team
Eoghan is an architect and founder of the Sydney Architecture Walks.
The SAW tours operate in parallel to practice – a kind of iterative, quasi-research project as well as an opportunity to share the things he’s passionate about with the design-curious public. He reckons cities are society’s greatest cultural expression and a city’s architecture is there to be clambered over and talked (walked) about.
As principal architect at Eoghan Lewis Architects, his guiding and professional passions are closely aligned. In 2022 he was awarded international, national and state awards for Public Architecture.
Nicholas has been guiding with Sydney Architecture Walks since graduating as the University of Sydney’s Master’s Graduate of the Year in 2020.
For Nicholas, the tours are a wonderful opportunity to explore architectural ideas with the public and share his belief in architecture’s potential to elevate our experience and understanding of the world around us.
Nicholas’ design approach has been deeply informed by his studies and work in Australia, Italy and Denmark. In practice Nicholas has been working a range of projects with the team at Andrew Burns Architecture.
