It was a fantastic evening filled with discussions about architecture and careers. We had a diverse range of mentors that included architects, interior designers, landscape architects, urban designers, heritage architects, planners, project managers, architectural photographers, and academics.

The speed-dating format asked mentors and mentees to sit down and commence quick-fire rounds of conversation in 5-minute successions. After about an hour of this structured format, the floor was opened for guests to mix and weave connections in an organic and spontaneous way.

We are grateful to all our mentors who gave their time and experience so generously. We also want to thank all the mentees for taking the time, purchasing the tickets to support A+W NZ and making it a wonderful and exciting evening.
