Look closely at Sydney’s buzzing creative district and you may discover you’re within a university campus. Over the past decade, more than $1 billion has been invested in the University of Technology Sydney, making it the home of some of the world’s most innovative ideas.

Located in the heart of Tech Central, UTS is known for its cross-disciplinary approach to teaching and learning, and its strong industry connections. Hear from the university’s leading thinkers, creators, and innovators across the Vivid Sydney 2024 program.

Don’t miss the striking Dr Chau Chak Wing building, designed by legendary American architect Frank Gehry. It is Gehry’s first building in Australia, colloquially known as the crumpled paper bag. 320,000 custom bricks were laid by hand to create unique fluidity of form and texture. The building sits on The Goods Line, another of the area’s engineering wonders – a repurposed train line that’s now an urban walkway and green space.

How to get there: UTS is a short walk from Central Station, where you can catch a train, bus, the light rail from all over Sydney or walk along The Goods Line from Darling Harbour.
