Warren and Mahoney has appointed Daryl Maguire – the designer behind Christchurch’s new temporary AMI Stadium, which was built in just 100 days – as a senior architect and principal at its Christchurch studio.
With a career of 25 years and counting, Maguire joins Warren and Mahoney from Populous, an international architecture firm specialising in sports stadiums.
While at Populous he led the temporary AMI Stadium project and was Project Architect for the Eden Park redevelopment. He has also worked on events centres, theatres, retail, master planning and office buildings.
Maguire previously worked at firms including Chow Hill, Craig Craig Moller, ASC Architects, Altoon + Porter and Renzo Zecchetto Architects, USA.
“I’m delighted to be joining Warren and Mahoney, a firm which has such deep and strong ties to the city,” says Maguire. “It’s an incredible opportunity: with our objective of creating a better place for the people of Christchurch, good design, combined with investment targeting quality spaces, will result in a new city we can all be very proud of.”
Warren and Mahoney managing director Peter Marshall says the firm is delighted to have attracted an architect of Maguire’s pedigree.
“There’s no doubt that Christchurch will be an exciting place for architects over the next few years. Part of our strategy has been to engage architects with the specialist experience that will be required to rebuild the key buildings Christchurch needs. In Daryl, we have a very experienced architect with expertise in leading large and complex projects such as public buildings,” says Marshall.
