The world-heritage listed Sydney Opera House, designed more than 60 years ago and arguably the most well-known and iconic building in Australia, has recently enjoyed a major renewal which has won a host of awards, including the 2023 Australian Timber Design Award.

Director of ARM ArchitectureExternal link, Andrew Hayne, will discuss the amazing acoustic and architectural transformation, accomplished through a marriage of innovative digital design, offsite manufacturing, and creative acoustic engineering. A key feature of the renewal was the inclusion of a series of stunning, sculptured solid carved Brushbox panels, which serve as aesthetic enhancements and acoustic heroes, breaking up and diffusing sound waves to eliminate problematic reflections, and creating a rich, enveloping auditory experience.

Join us to learn all about this absolutely fascinating design and construction journey which spanned over seven years, from project inception through to the gala re-opening.
