When one says ‘Sydney’ sometimes the mind just baffles.  There’s the obvious associations which come to mind; the Opera House, the Harbour Bridge, Bondi Beach, KE-ZU’s showroom... but what about the not-so-obvious or not-allowed-in gems that Sydney has to offer? This is where we welcome Sydney Open 2012 – kicking off on 2 November through to 4 November.  Run again through the Historic Houses Trust of NSW, Sydney Open is a one-weekend only biennial show which explores architectural icons, heritage buildings and contemporary designs in Sydney not normally open to the public.   Close to 70 buildings become available with tours and talks over the course of the weekend – and for the most part, Sydney Open is the only way to access these buildings without leaving in handcuffs. See the promotional video here. We understand from our friends over at Sydney Open that tickets are selling fast, you can get more information and buy tickets online here. See you there!
