J­­oin exhibition curator Albert L Refiti for an informative floor talk on Oceanic Architectural Routes: The photographic archive of Mike Austin: Presented by Architectus.

Refiti writes of the exhibition:

“The images and ideas seeded by Austin’s Oceanic architecture lectures quietly sprouted alternative roots in contemporary New Zealand architectural history. Some of these roots became routes (to borrow a metaphor from anthropologist James Clifford) – they enabled Pacific architectural customs and knowledge to connect with the vast reservoir of Indigenous knowledge worldwide, leading to the burgeoning interest in Pacific/Moana and Māori architecture today.”
