Architecture Week 2015 – Wellington Walks and Talks

Wellington brings back Architecture Week - a fun, provocative and insightful week of events celebrating our built environment - and all FREE to the public.

Join us for Lunchtime Talks at the City Gallery Adam Auditorium, 12.30-1.30pm, Monday 21 to Friday 25 September. The Talks will cover a wide range of engaging topics that include the heritage and the future of our cities, community-led urbanism, and the intersection of art and architecture.

Pop into a local architecture studio to see new, iconic and interesting work by the creative minds behind some of our favourite buildings. The Studio Walk will take in practices in the CBD between the Railway Station and the Embassy, 11am-3pm, Saturday 26 September. Bring a friend - walk or talk - see you there!
