SRD CHANGE 09: About

SRD Change is a unique exhibition of graduate sustainable design that often directly challenges conventional expectations. Exhibits are selected from a diverse range of design areas from all of Sydney's top Universities. They feature innovative visual and 3D works, multimedia and even high fashion garments. Held annually since 2004 with healthy annual visitor numbers, we have plans in place to promote our exhibition to an even wider audience.

Tokyo’s urban design role | The Japan Times Online

When governments and corporations are able to connect with residents' passions and potential for action, Tokyo can become an urban forest with a thriving ecosystem where the health of soil, plants, animals and people are deeply intertwined. In the leap from last century's industrial economy to a sustainable future, Japan is poised for an outsized role on the world stage. By focusing on habitats and culture, Tokyo can become a model for a new balance between people and nature in 21st century urban life.
