City Talks - Bridges & Pathways: Small Practice and the City

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

28 MAY 2018


CITY TALKS: Dr Sam Kebbell

Bridges & Pathways: Small Practice and the City
City Gallery Wellington, Civic Square
Monday 18 June, 6pm
Free entry

Kapiti Island needs a visitor centre, and Hataitai needs better pedestrian routes. Sam divides his time between academia and professional practice and will talk about recent design research around projects that extends the remit of traditional practice and adds to the public discussion about architecture.
City Talks is an ongoing series initiated by the New Zealand Institute of Architects Wellington Branch and presented in partnership with City Gallery Wellington. Its purpose is to foster discussion about architecture for a broader audience in a city that cares to openly discuss ideas relevant to our future.

Sam Kebbell runs KebbellDaish Architects and lectures at the School of Architecture, Victoria University of Wellington. He completed his MDes in History and Theory at Harvard in 1999, and he worked in Boston, New York, and Amsterdam before starting KebbellDaish in 2002. In 2015, he was an ADAPTr Research Fellow at the University of Westminster in London. In 2016, he finished his PhD at RMIT in Melbourne with research that revealed the creative potential of a tension between local cultures and international ideas.

The talk will be followed by refreshments.


City Talks are free to attend and held in the Adam Auditorium, City Gallery Wellington, Civic Square. The talk schedule is as follows:

Monday 13 August, 6pm
Today you have called my name
Gareth Watkins & Roger Smith walk us through Wellingtons buildings and places highlighting the city’s rich LGBTI rainbow heritage.

Further talks to be confirmed.

Hope For Nature: A New Deal For The Commons

Joseph Cederwall on The Dig: The disruption and destruction of the interconnected biodiversity of Earth is the most serious challenge humanity has ever faced. This is an ecosystem emergency on an extinction scale. It is also a serious threat to the inherent rights of the diversity of non-human life, ecosystems and human Cultures on Earth to exist and thrive. The current global paradigm is devastating life everywhere by disrupting vital “ecosystem services” like the food, water, and climate regulation systems that both humanity and biodiversity depend on in an interconnected balance. It is increasingly clear that the primary driver of this crisis is the limiting and infectious worldview around land and resource use so central to the global capitalist system. To fully understand the biodiversity crisis and explore what comes next, it is necessary to address this mind-virus at the heart of our modern civilisation – the dominion worldview. More>>
