Futuna Lecture Series 2022

Dates Confirmed!!

We are very pleased to be able to announce that the Futuna Guest Lecturer for 2021 will be our very own homegrown architect Michael O’Sullivan of B/OS Architecture.

Michael comes from a unique background and set of experiences. He has developed an approach to his architecture that is distinct, pragmatic and beautiful in its resolution and execution.  His use of materials is inventive and surprising and Michael himself has catergorised the outcomes as “odd”.

He will talk about the work of B/OS Architecture and look at recent, current  and future projects as he describes the processes of designing, drawing, and delivering the unique architectural experiences, no doubt with generous sprinklings of his personal architectural philosophy and learnings to date.

Michael has won the Sir Ian Athfield Architecture Award for Housing twice, first for a studio in Lyttleton (2015) and, secondly, for additions to an existing state house (2020) also in Lyttleton.

The confirmed dates for the Futuna Lecture Series for 2022 are:
  • Auckland – 6:30pm Wednesday 21st September @ St. Matthews-in-the-City Church
  • Christchurch – 6:30pm Friday 23rd September @ St. Andrews College Centennial Chapel
  • Wellington – 6:30pm Saturday 24th September @ Futuna Chapel.
Our sponsors, Dulux NZ, Metalcraft Roofing, Plytech, APL, Warren Trust and NZIA branches, have been unanimous in continuing their support for the Futuna Lecture Series 2022. This unanimous vote of confidence in these uncertain times is very much appreciated.  The Trust hopes that NZ architects, graduates, students and interested members of the public will be able to attend this event and thereby support the Trust in its work. There will be 15 CPD points available for NZ registered architects.

The Futuna Trust is a completely voluntary organisation and all funds raised from the Futuna Lecture Series go towards the ongoing care, maintenance and operation of Futuna Chapel and also to support various initiatives undertaken by the Trust.

Ticketing and booking details will be confirmed in the next few months.
