SAW Sydney Architecture Walking & Bike Tours 

About SAW Walks:

"The content of our walking tours is historically informed, our context contemporary. If a work of architecture or art 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.

Tours we've done in other cities left us cold. You know the kind I mean; cheap suit, little badge, politically correct, pitched to the lowest common denominator, full of the same old facts and figures and driven by the same old tourist sites. But no insight. And they assume you're stupid. The architecture tours are even worse. Dry conversations full of dates, facts and figures like some join the dots. We prefer tours that offer a particular point of view, that look at the city through a particular lens.

We are friends and we are architects and designers and we love cities. Especially thiscity. We spend much of our spare time roaming the streets, looking for signs of life – those small pockets of resistance where a city's inner machinations can be seen volcano-like bubbling through its crust.

SAW guides are city experts. Our lens is architecture, public art and design. Our urban conversations revolve around the ideas and concepts, the political events, personalities, cultural and social attitudes that pull and push at Sydney like its tides. Through its architecture Sydney's story unfolds."

And SAW Rides:

"Taking on Orwells mantra "four wheels good, two wheels better" we will drift along the city's formerly-industrial western waterfront before plucking out the most interesting and provocative architectural projects and hidden gems in nearby suburbs Ultimo, Chippendale, Redfern, Waterloo and Surry Hills.
