Description

THREE ROOVES

Peter Buchanan, in an essay in the UK Architectural Review, suggested ‘people who have migrated by sea, such as those around the Pacific rim, have developed as lightweight tension cultures as opposed to the heavier compression cultures of the old world’.

Christopher Kelly is the founding principal of Architecture Workshop in Wellington. Kelly brings conceptual rigour to all stages of a project and a deep understanding of the processes needed to produce landmark buildings, honed over a career that is equal parts local and global.

Kelly was born in the Wairarapa and studied architecture at Victoria University of Wellington. Prior to establishing Architecture workshop in 1992, he worked under Ian Athfield and undertook a post-graduate course in architecture at the Fine Arts Städelschule in Frankfurt. In 1989 he joined Renzo Piano’s Kansai Air Terminal team in the initial design phase of the joint venture for the 1.4 billion USD building. He became one of the project architects in the detailed design stage, leading the construction documentation of the 1.6 km long air terminal roof in the Osaka office.

For the 2018 Ted McCoy lecture, Christopher Kelly will discuss three of Architecture Workshops most recent projects in relation to German philosopher Gottfreid Semper’s engagement with the earth and the lightweight use of innovative engineered timber.
