Description

The Friends of Futuna Charitable Trust and Historic PLaces Wellington are pleased to co -host these two free public talks on Heritage as part of Wellingotn Heritage Week.

Talk One 3pm Sunday 3 November

Jamie Jacobs - Central Region Director for Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga. Jamie's talk is entitled:

The Stubborn Ambivalence Toward the Twentieth Century Suburban Vernacular


Despite ever increasing scholarship and official recognition of mid-twentieth century buildings and landscapes, there remains distressingly limited support and a broad ambivalence about the everyday architecture of suburbia. Looking primarily at the current environment in the United States with further case studies providing links to the New Zealand context, this presentation will explore concepts and contributing factors challenging the present generation of heritage conservation professionals, which are embodied in suburban planning and design while also touching on ideas such as scope, familiarity, and exclusion.



Talk Two - 3:30pm Sunday 3 November

Sharon Jansen - BArch (Hons) Registered Architect FNZIA. Sharon's talk is entitled:


Nelson House Alteration -Ernst Plischke 1961

A discussion outlining the restoration of a relatively unknown house by Ernst Plischke, which was built in Nelson in 1961 for the Griffin Family. Knowledge of the house only came to light in 2012, with the drawings found in the Nelson City Archives. The house was in a poor state, having had little maintenance over its years and an ungainly extension added to the face of the building in 1994.

This talk will track its restoration to grace, through drawings and photographs.

These two talks are free to register for and will be followed by an afternoon tea provided by Historic Places Wellington.

Koha will be warmly accepted.

10 CPD points for Registered Architects
