Event description
Fast Forward Lecture Series Spring 2021

About this event

Fast Forward is the School of Architecture and Planning’s biannual lecture series. With COVID-related travel restrictions still in place, Fast Forward Spring 2021 capitalises on the opportunity afforded by webinars to catch up with a series of the School’s high-achieving alumni doing extraordinary work overseas. This lecture series will conclude with an in-person exaugural address from alumna and Dean of Creative Arts and Industries, Professor Diane Brand reflecting on a trailblazing career and the series’ themes.

Talk 6: Diane Brand, Dean of the Faculty of Creative Arts and Industries, “Miss Mondrian’s Architectural Journey: From Courtyard House to Creative Arts”

Professor Diane Brand grew up in an Erwin Winkler-designed courtyard house in Wellington. The experience of seeing the modernist building designed and built informed her decision at 12 years of age to become an architect. In 1976, in her first year at the University of Auckland School of Architecture, Diane earned the nickname Miss Mondrian for her spare, geometric, primary coloured studio work. Her 45-year career in architecture has traversed public service hydroelectric infrastructure provision, commercial projects in corporate architectural practice in Australia, urban design studies at Harvard, teaching and research, university executive management and jewellery making, demonstrating the career reach of an architectural education. This lecture will follow that trajectory and show that in all dimensions of her work, design has been a central concern.

Date: Postponed to 2022. New date to be announced.

Location: University of Auckland City Campus.
