2009 NZIA ASSA ABLOY Urban Design Series


The 2009 NZIA ASSA ABLOY Urban Design Series provides an opportunity for architects to meet some of the leading urban designers of our time. With Victorian Government Architect Professor Geoffrey London, and leading New Zealand designers Alistair Ray and Graeme McIndoe, the calibre of presenters is unparalleled.

The series will initially be held over three nights, in Auckland (31st August), Christchurch (1st September) and Wellington (2nd September). The series will tour to a further three locations in Dunedin, Tauranga and New Plymouth and will be held later in the year.

As well as a chance to hear from some exciting and progressive architects, the series also provides a chance to earn 40 CPD Design points.
