Fast Forward is the bi-annual lecture series hosted by the University of Auckland’s School of Architecture and Planning. It aims to foster debate, discussion and development within the disciplines of architecture, urban design and urban planning.

For Making Ways FFWD is collaborating with the Objectspace Ockham Residential Series to bring this public lecture into the gallery, based around the themes of the exhibition.

Architects Julie Stout and Lynda Simmons and Urban Planner Dr. Elizabeth Aitken Rose will speak on their practices operating at the intersections of activism, feminism, and the built realm.

This lecture will take place in the gallery among the work produced by ĀKAU and their collaborators. Based in Te Taitokerau, Northland, ĀKAU is a design and architecture practice that places people and community at the heart of their projects.

This lecture series is part of the Festival of Architecture and made possible with the generous support of GIB®.
