Exhibition opening event 10:30 Sunday 23 September

Women have been consistently present in New Zealand’s architectural history, however largely absent from our documented stories. The A+W•NZ Timeline was first exhibited in the Silo 6 Gallery in our ‘Between Silos’ Exhibition in 2013, and here we re-exhibit as part of FoA 2018. The A+W•NZ Timeline was created by Marianne Calvelo, with assistance by Joy Roxas (designer) and Lynda Simmons (curator). More information here.
