In partnership with the National Library and Ngā Aho, the Wellington branch presents a book club panel discussion with a difference. Our diverse group of panellists will discuss a selection of New Zealand books on the theme of ‘expanded fields’ to explore how we can think more broadly about the realm of Architecture.

The panel will include:

Ben Jagersma – Architect and Director of First Light Studio Ltd
Dr. Rebecca Kiddle – Senior Lecturer at Victoria University of Wellington
Matt Ritani – Designer working within research, drawing, sculpture, and architecture.
Moana Nuku – Architectural Graduate at Designgroup Stapleton Elliott

Chaired by Robin Skinner – Senior Lecturer at Victoria University of Wellington.

The selected texts for discussion are:
