Architectural historian, Dr Jessica Halliday, who is also Director of the city's incredibly cool 'Festival of Transitional Architecture' will be part of this year's awesome line-up along with Dr Ryan Reynolds of Gap Filler, Street Artist George Shaw, lighting guru Kevin Cawley, Landscape Architect Di Lucas, Architect David Hill, Kaila Colbin from the Ministry of Awesome and Dr Nick Smith the Minister for Building and Housing - JUST TO NAME A FEW!
In addition to a fantastic array of speakers, the conference will include a tour of the mystical and revolutionary PurePods in Little River, a visit to SiloStay and the award winning 'Rockhill Residence' and a walk through Ohinetahi Gardens with Sir Miles Warren.
To finish off the festivities - a Gala Awards Ceremony announcing the National Award Winners will be held on Friday 30 October.
ADNZ CEO, Astrid Andersen, says this year's conference isn't about the earthquakes or the rebuild - it's about the creative people that have risen from the rubble and the architecture which will ultimately define this city.
"Canterbury is a fascinating region, it is exciting, innovative, emerging, transitional and quite complex. We are delighted to be holding our annual conference in Christchurch, including the National Awards Ceremony. We welcome all ADNZ members, practicing Architectural Designers and Architects to attend" says Astrid.
