    Sydney Architecture Festival

    Philip Thalis recently gave a talk at the Architect’s Bookshop, as part of the Sydney Architecture Festival, dedicated to the issue of Affordable Housing. The talk detailed the history of affordable housing projects in Sydney, including the important work of the Sydney Harbour Federation Trust in Millers Point – making the point that the public sector has been a leader in excellent affordable housing throughout our city’s history – and should reprise that role.
