In this informal discussion Andrew Just talks about motivation and action. The projects Andrew finds himself working on, and the roles he plays, often surprise him and don’t necessarily fit with his previous preconceptions about what an ‘architect’ does or what ‘architecture’ is. As those understandings have been thrown into question, he has become more aware of the skills architects do have and the roles architects can play. This fluidity feeds into ideas about developing a sense of meaning, citizenship, organisations, professionalism, architecture and the city. CPD Points available to NZIA members.

Andrew Just is a protagonist, servant, activist, citizen, facilitator/enabler and architecture graduate. He is a co-founder of urban regeneration initiative Gap Filler, and of architecture practice Field. Andrew lives in Christchurch.

This event is part of the public programme that runs in conjunction with People Building Better Cities exhibition. Running from 28 July to 29 August at the Te Pūtahi Pop-Up Space in the Unimed Building at 163 Gloucester Street, the Christchurch edition of People Building Better Cities promotes participation and inclusive urbanization through its public programme, which includes discussions, lectures, interaction, professional development training and school workshops.
