Birch Building guided tours

Hosted by ANU School of Cybernetics

Want to see the new Birch Building? Curious about what Cybernetics is? Want to learn how Cybernetics interrogates a technology enabled future that we are all destined to live with?

Join us for a guided tour through the award-winning Birch Building’s heritage features and dive into the School of Cybernetics experience.

The ANU Birch Building’s recent renovation received multiple awards, celebrating its preservation, adaptation and forward-thinking innovations at the 2022 ACT Architecture Awards. Check out the building’s unique heritage features that form part of our rich ANU history: from a historic water fountain to the iconic central atrium staircase and the building’s distinctive precast exterior facade.

Experience and interact with Cybernetics first hand, from playing with the Random Excuse Generator machine, to giving AI direct orders in our PANIC (Playground AI Network for Interactive Creativity) room.

Tickets are limited, book yours ahead!
