NZIA Festival of Architecture

Wednesday 12 September to Sunday 23 September




Wed 12 September to Sun 23 September


Various locations around Tauranga

The NZIA Festival of Architecture is here in Tauranga for the second year! Jam packed with a series of events for all ages, on all things architecture.

Find out about VR through an interactive workshop on Wednesday, hear from Edwards White on urban renewal at the opening on Thursday, check out Love our Laneways Thurs – Sat, that finishes up with Citizen Jane at Laneway Cinema Night on Saturday.

The following week, explore how we might tell our stories through urban design in the CBD. Take a tour of CBD designs through the Property Council Open Doors.

If you know people thinking of getting into architecture or talking to an architect, check out Open Source, or if they are much younger, they can help build the city in lego at Legotropolis.

For a family challenge, take up the CBD treasures challenge any time throughout the festival with a chance to win a dinner voucher. All events are free thanks to our generous sponsors, however booking is essential.
