The Futuna Trust is delighted to announce the ticketing details for the Futuna Lecture Series – and bookings are now open!
The Futuna Guest Lecturer for 2022 is 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.
This year, for the first time in 12 years, attendance at the 2022 Futuna Lecture Series is to be on a koha/donation basis. The Trustees decided that this was a better fit with the evolving kaupapa for Futuna Chapel. Attendees can register using variety of ticket/koha/donation of $10, $15, $20 or $25.
The bookings go live on 8th July at 12:00pm. The booking links follow:
AUCKLAND – ST.MATTHEWS-IN-THE-CITY WEDNESAY 21 SEPT
CHRISTCHURCH – ST. ANDREWS COLLEGE CENTENNIAL CHAPEL FRIDAY 23 SEP
WELLINGTON – FUTUNA CHAPEL – SATURDAY 24TH SEPT
There are 15 Design CPD points available for NZ registered architects
This change in the ticketing/booking for this important annual event on the NZ architectural calendar is possible due to the continued support of our sponsors – Dulux NZ, Metalcraft Roofing, Plytech, APL, Warren Trust and NZIA branches. 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.
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.
