Towards Small Things is a platform for small public architecture created by Sydney-based architect Jordan Silver. Along with a catalogue of inspiring examples from around the world, the platform includes original written pieces, talks, interviews and illustrations. Combined, they form an online resource for architects, educators, government and everyday people to better understand the role of small public architecture in our world.
Jordan is the recipient of the coveted 2022 Byera Hadley Travelling Scholarship for his project titled ‘Rest Stops and Viewpoints: A case for Small Public Architecture in Regional NSW’. In his associate role at Andrew Burns Architecture, Jordan has led high profile regional projects including the Light to Light Walk, the first hut-to-hut walking experience for National Parks and Wildlife Service NSW (NPWS). Alongside his architecture practice, Jordan has held a regular guest spot on ABC radio (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) radio and has written for the ABC on a range of issues related to small public architecture.
