Dr Jessica Halliday, architectural historian and leader of the New Zealand Architects of the Postwar Period oral history project, will give a talk on Miles Warren and brutalism.

'Miles: A Life in Architecture' celebrates the achievements of one of the most illustrious alumni of the School of Architecture at The University of Auckland

The exhibition reveals Sir Miles’ substantial contribution to modernism in New Zealand and his subsequent move towards a post modernist idiom, as well as his achievements as a draughtsman and watercolourist.

Traversing the architect’s career, from the design of the Dorset Street flats to such landmarks as College House, the Christchurch Town Hall and the New Zealand Chancery in Washington, the exhibition includes seldom-seen watercolour perspectives of building projects.

'Miles: A Life in Architecture' will be on display from 23 April – 29 May 2010 at the Gus Fisher Gallery.

The exhibition was developed and toured by Christchurch Art Gallery with support from The Warren Trust, Pyne Gould Corporation and Luneys Construction.
