Aotearoa Festival of Architecture

The Festival of Architecture will not take place in 2021

The Festival of Architecture is an annual series of engaging, enjoyable and almost entirely free events that aim to celebrate and investigate the role of architecture in improving the quality of life in Aotearoa New Zealand’s towns and cities. 

After the 2020 festival was cancelled, it was scheduled for September 2021. However, the August COVID-19 outbreak caused it to be cancelled. The Festival will be rescheduled for 2022. 

Co-ordinated by Te Kāhui Whaihanga New Zealand Institute of Architects, along with other organisations and people interested in promoting a better understanding of architecture within New Zealand’s communities, the Festival of Architecture aims to match people of all ages and levels of architectural interest with activities that will extend their knowledge and understanding of architecture and design.
