Event Details


Come celebrate the opening of our winter exhibitions.

Duncan Winder: architectural photographs and The buildings notice me ask us to consider our architectural legacy and meditate on the ways we take up space.

Duncan Winder: architectural photographs presents a selection of images from the architect-turned-photographer’s archive now housed in the Alexander Turnbull Library brought together by guest curator Sebastian Clarke. The buildings notice me is a group show curated by Sophie Thorn featuring works that invite us to think about the reciprocal relationship between our built environment and lived experience.

Duncan Winder: architectural photographs has been realised through the generous support of the late architect Bill and his wife Margaret Alington, ONZM, who made a significant gift to Te Pātaka Toi Adam Art Gallery in 2023 to support projects that will advance architectural knowledge. We also acknowledge the generous support of the Alexander Turnbull Library and Te Koki New Zealand School of Music.

Refreshments are provided with grateful thanks to our sponsors, wine by Ngā Waka and Stoke beer by McCashin's Brewery.
