Book panel discussion with a difference.

Join us for a book club panel discussion with a difference. A diverse group of panellists will discuss a selection of New Zealand books on the theme of ‘expanded fields’ to explore how we can think more deeply about the realm of Architecture.

The selected texts for discussion are:
- Architecture in an Expanded Field: Selected essays
- Drawing is/Not Building: Editors: Christina Barton, Sarah Treadwell and Simon Twose
- False Divides: by Lana Lopesi
- Christchurch Ruptures: by Katie Pickles

This event is part of the NZIA’s festival of Architecture from 20-29 September which provides a range of free events across Wellington and New Zealand open to anyone with an interest in Architecture.

About the Festival of Architecture
The Festival of Architecture is an annual series of engaging, enjoyable and almost entirely free events that celebrate and investigate the role of architecture in improving the quality of life in Aotearoa New Zealand’s towns and cities.

The Festival, co-ordinated by the New Zealand Institute of Architects along with other organisations interested in widening the understanding of architecture in New Zealand, matches people of all ages and levels of architectural interest with activities that will extend their knowledge of architecture and design.

The 2019 Festival of Architecture programme includes a variety of mostly free events: speakers and presentations, building and walking tours, exhibitions, open studios (meet a ‘real’ architect), design competitions, debates and workshops. What makes a building or public space good or great? What influences are shaping our buildings today, and what pressures will shape them into the future?
