About this Event

Industry and student makers, doers and creators are invited to join us for Ramp Talks with indigenous architectural designer, writer and researcher, Jade Kake (Ngāpuhi, Te Parawhau me Ngāti Hau, Ngāti Whakaue, Te Whakatōhea), from 11am to 12pm at Te Kōpu Mānia 0 Kirikiriroa, Friday, October 9th.

Travelling from the Whangārei-based studio she founded in 2018, Matakohe Architecture and Urbanism, Jade joins us to share her influences, background, and insights into her journey as a wahine bringing Māori culture to the forefront of her architectural practice.

Jade and the small team at Matakohe, work with Māori organisations on their marae, papakāinga and civic projects, and with mana whenua groups to express their cultural values and narratives in the design on their physical environments.

Following an hour long korero we'll share lunch at the wharekai from 12 - 1 pm.

Best practice for COVID level 2 will be at play and tickets are limited so get in quick to secure your space.

Thanks to Chow Hill for making this event possible.
