A slice through New Zealand: Objectspace maps out the built environment of Aotearoa

An exploration of the historical, cultural and environmental influences on the design of building typologies in Aotearoa New Zealand comes to Objectspace this August. Curated by Dr Andrew Barrie, Professor of Design at The University of Auckland’s School of Architecture and Planning, In Context will open on August 10 and has a focus on architecture as seen through the lens of the award-winning architecture practice, RTA Studio.

Better by design

New Zealand has galleries a plenty to frequent when it comes to showcasing visual art, but the work of architects and other design disciplines have been underserved ­– until now, with Objectspace. And with national conversations around urban planning and housing a hot topic, its expansion couldn’t be more timely. We chatted with director Kim Paton about her vision for the gallery’s new space.
