In:situ NZIA Conference 2017

In:situ, the national biennial conference of the NZ Institute of Architects (NZIA)

In:situ, the national biennial conference of the NZ Institute of Architects (NZIA), is taking place this year at the ANZ Viaduct Events Centre, Auckland, 9-11 February.

In:situ is about architecture and the contexts in which it occurs – physical and intellectual, geographical and typological, social and historical. It has a wide focus on the forces and circumstances that influence architects’ work and their careers. The conference speakers traverse much of the contemporary architectural terrain. They work on a wide range of projects of varying scales in very different places, and have built diverse and accomplished careers. In doing so they have responded to the changing nature of practice and proved the continuing relevance and importance of the role of the architect.
