Made in partnership with:


Explore the futures that we are creating at the interactive Museum of Futures exhibition. Engage with 10 objects that tell of two possible futures: a utopia where we tackle climate change, and a dystopia where the extreme climate has changed our current way of life forever.

The Museum of Futures is an experimental collaboration between the if labs, CitySwitch and the City of Sydney’s Better Building Partnership.

We wanted to find out what matters to office workers and to provide a platform for people to voice their views on the future of our cities. We aim to drive critical building decisions on energy, waste, water and transport. Together, we can achieve a carbon positive future.
