An understanding of our rich and varied engineering heritage can help inform the decisions we make today.
This webinar gives an overview of Engineering New Zealand’s heritage programme and showcases a selection of the engineering heritage items on their Heritage Record. We’ve chosen items that have an architectural connection and link with current questions and challenges including adaptive reuse, earthquake strengthening and urban planning.
There are plenty of places where engineering and architecture intersect, and we hope that discovering a little more about engineering will open conversations for further collaboration and benefits for the members of both our institutes.
