Architecture and Cultural Identity – Inspiration From Indigenous Heritage

Architecture and Cultural Identity – Inspiration From Indigenous Heritage

Join us for a fascinating conversation exploring the process of curating a cultural narrative throughout architecture.

About this event
Facilitated by the Sculptform Studio team, this event will uncover the fascinating design of New Zealand's Te Pae Christchurch Convention Centre Precinct and explore incorporating cultural identity within architecture.

Special guests for the discussion include Bruno Mendes, Principal at Woods Bagot, Puamiria Parata-Goodall, Director at Te Pakura, Claire Nunez, Technical Director Heritage at Biosis and Bob Barton, Director at MALA Studio.

One of 17 anchor projects initiated as a part of the Christchurch Central Recovery Plan, it involved a 100-day collaboration process where architects and urban planners devised a recovery program for the central business district affected by a 2011 earthquake.

The discussion will then take a broader view to examine how architects draw inspiration from nationality, ethnicity, generation and locality to pay respect to our cultural identity. The conversation will examine the process of consultation and early engagement, as a significant factor in overall project success, indigenous community acceptance and public recognition.

Doors open at 5.30pm with the presentation starting at 6:00pm, to be followed by networking drinks with catering by Mabu Mabu.

Enjoy peer discussion and experience indigenous flavours, such as pepperberry kangaroo, purple yam, wattleseed and finger lime, just to name a few.
