Peter will give three public lectures in New Zealand (Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington), speaking about his work using recent projects to demonstrate the philosophy and vision that underpins his architectural practice.
Futuna Chapel is generally regarded as one of the most significant New Zealand buildings of the 20th century. It won the New Zealand Institute of Architect’s gold medal in 1968, and the 25 year award in 1986. The Chapel’s architect, John Scott, was posthumously awarded a NZIA Gold Meal for Enduring Architecture in 1999. The Friends of Futuna Charitable Trust conserve the Futuna Chapel and aim to make it available on a regulated basis to the public now and into the future.
The Futuna Lecture Series is the largest annual fundraising event for the Friends of Futuna Charitable Trust – and is sponsored by Dulux NZ, Metalcraft Roofing, The Warren Trust, the Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington branches of the NZIA and Plytech.
