Paul Walker, Associate Professor in Architecture, Building and Planning at the University of Melbourne, will speak about Miles Warren’s contribution to modernism in New Zealand. Walker wrote the introduction to New Territory: Warren and Mahoney – 50 years of New Zealand Architecture published by Balasoglou Books in 2005.

'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 - Sir Miles Warren.

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.
