Futuna Lecture Series 2022 | Michael O'Sullivan

The trustees of Friends of Futuna Charitable Trust are delighted to have our very own homegrown architect Michael O’Sullivan of B/OS Architecture as the Futuna Guest Lecturer for 2022.
 
Michael comes from a unique background and set of experiences and has developed an approach to his architecture that is distinctive, pragmatic and beautiful in its resolution and execution. His use of materials is inventive and surprising and Michael himself has categorised the outcomes as “odd”.
 
He will talk about the work of B/OS Architecture and look at recent, current and future projects as he describes the processes of designing, painting, drawing, and delivering these unique architectural experiences, no doubt with generous sprinklings of his personal architectural philosophy and learnings to date.
 
Michael has won the Sir Ian Athfield Architecture Award for Housing twice, first for a studio in Lyttleton (2015) and, secondly, for additions to an existing state house (2020) also in Lyttleton. In 2011 he won Home of the Year for a bach at Kare Kare Beach. This year, B/OS received two awards at the Canterbury Architecture Awards. The first was for Green Family Home which was featured on Grand Designs several years ago, and the second for Gustorob - designed and built for three generations of one family.
 
This year entry is free, however to make a koha/donation towards the Chapel, attendees can register combining their free ticket with a donation of either $10, $15, $20 or $25. Donations do not attract GST.
 
There are 15 Design CPD points available for NZ registered architects.
 
Doors open at 6:00pm for a 6:30pm start. Bookings essential.
 
The Trust would like to thank the continued support of their sponsors  Dulux NZ, Metalcraft Roofing, Plytech, APL, Warren Trust and NZIA branches.
