A+W NZ Timeline and A+W NZ Tatuhi / Drawing Architecture Archive UpdateBack
A+W NZ Timeline on Tour: Nelson
DUE TO NATIONWIDE LOCKDOWN LEVELS, THIS EXHIBITION HAS BEEN POSTPONED.
Unfortunately, this exhibition cannot go ahead in 2021 - it has been re-scheduled to coincide with other events in Nelson in August/September 2022.
We will continue to provide updates via social media, the A+W NZ Newsletter, and this page.
The Timeline is celebration of women in the architectural community, making visible the gaps in the documented histories of New Zealand’s architectural profession. The A+W•NZ Timeline was first exhibited in the Silo 6 Gallery in Auckland in our 'Between Silos' Exhibition in 2013, and was created by Marianne Calvelo, with Joy Roxas (Designer) and Lynda Simmons (Curator).
Since then, it has been re-installed multiple times with additional researchers assisting at each re-installation, including Dr Deidre Brown, Dr Lucy Treep, Ashleigh Smith and Alex Pirie, with soundworks by Elisapeta Heta.

Tātuhi / Drawing Architecture Exhibition
Alongside the A+W NZ Timeline at the at Refinery Artspace in Nelson, the A+W NZ Tātuhi / Drawing Architecture: Sarah Treadwell Archive will also be exhibiting. This will be the first physical exhibition of the online archive, a digital storehouse of architectural drawings that is sponsored annually by Metalcraft.
Tātuhi / Drawing Architecture was established in 2017 in recognition of Dr Sarah Treadwell’s career in architecture and her influence on several generations of architects, artists and thinkers. Each year, a drawing is selected by Sarah and her nominated team - the archive serving as a slow-building record of drawing styles and influences over years and decades.
Archive drawings to date include: Oceanic Study (2017) by Sarah Treadwell, Feitu'u Faiva Long Section (2018) by Lucy Vete, Upon Constitution Hill (2019) by Matthew Boyuan Cao, Bhāvanā by Devyani Sethi and Tūrangawaewae | A Place to Stand (2021) by Jonathan Morrish.
It is exciting to share founding drawings of the archive for the first time.
