We celebrate Matariki with a panel kōrero featuring five emerging architectural designers, artists and thinkers who will discuss what the future of our built environment needs to be: beautiful, inclusive, safe, equitable and providing a platform for generations to come.
Convened by Elisapeta Heta, Architectural Graduate, Ngātiwai, Waikato Tainui, the panel includes Te Ari Prendergast, architectural graduate, Te Whānau-ā-Apanui, Ngāi Tahu, Ngāti Porou; Amber Ruckes, architectural graduate, Ngāi Tūhoe; Hana Scott, architect, Ngāti Whakaue, Te Arawa, Ngāti Raukawa, Ngāti Kahungunu; and Whare Timu, senior architectural graduate, Ngāti Kahungunu.
This kōrero acknowledges the recent loss of pivotal thinker, architect and kaitiaki Rewi Thompson, his significant contribution to the built environment, to the education of architectural students and work with indigenous communities around the world. Moe mai rā e te rangatira.
