Fast Forward is the bi-annual lecture series hosted by the University of Auckland’s School of Architecture and Planning. It aims to foster debate, discussion and development within the disciplines of architecture, urban design and urban planning.
For Making Ways FFWD is collaborating with the Objectspace Ockham Residential Series to bring this public lecture into the gallery, based around the themes of the exhibition.
Making Ways exhibiting practice Makers of Architecture is joined in the gallery by another practice and an interviewer to explore new and alternative ways of making architecture.
On 2 October, Makers of Architecture directors Beth Cameron and Jae Warrander, will be interviewed alongside Andrew Barrie, director, Andrew Barrie Lab and professor at the University of Auckland, and Patrick Loo, co-founder of OPL.
This event is part of the Festival of Architecture. This lecture series is made possible by the generous support of GIB®.
Makers of Architecture engage in design making by utilising and developing mass customisation technologies to support the development of sustainable and resilient constructed environments. Makers of Architecture set out to close the gap between architecture and building, establishing Makers Fabrication, a prefabrication construction company, delivering projects throughout New Zealand. The two Makers companies work in collaboration with the design, university research and architectural communities, to build, test, iterate, prototype and develop the potentials of architectural design and build manufacturing. This allows Makers to be innovative, accurate and sustainable in their; design, planning, budgeting, timing and construction methods, while delivering high quality client and site specific designs.
