The 39th annual conference of the Society of Architectural Historians, Australia and New Zealand
The 16th conference of the Australasian Urban History / Planning History Group
School of Architecture and Planning, University of Auckland, 25-27 November 2022
Keynote speaker: We are delighted that Dr Ben Schrader, Victoria University of Wellington’s JD Stout Research Fellow for 2022, will present the keynote address. He will present from his current project on the history of heritage conservation in New Zealand.
We received 115 abstracts, of which 104 were accepted. They have led to 73 papers being accepted through the double-blind refereeing process. The conference will run in hybrid mode, with 54 of the papers to be presented at least partly in-person, and the remaining 19 solely in Zoom. Total registrations currently sit at 96, with 60 in-person and 36 online.
The programme will comprise full days of presentations on Friday 25 and Saturday 26 November, plus a half-day (morning) on Sunday 27 November, and Sunday afternoon tours. The SAHANZ AGM will take place from 4.00 to 5.30 p.m. (NZ time) on Friday 25 November, followed by a function for new life and honorary members of SAHANZ. The conference dinner will take place on the Saturday night.
There are two tour options for the Sunday afternoon: (i) a walking tour to Britomart, which is New Zealand’s largest urban revitalisation project with a strong heritage focus; and (ii) a bus tour to Ihumātao, a significant cultural heritage landscape embedded with pūrākau (cultural narratives). It is one of Auckland’s longest continuously occupied papakainga (Māori village) that was confiscated by colonial forces in 1863, and was the site of a recent land dispute between Māori, the Crown and corporate developers. The visit will include a short talk and hikoi (walk) led by campaign activist Pania Newton and campaign heritage advisor Nicola Short. Ihumātao is near Auckland Airport and the bus will deliver people to the International Terminal by 4.00 p.m. and then return to the University of Auckland in Symonds Street.
The conference venue is the University Conference Centre at 22 Symonds Street.
In terms of hotels, the Pulman, on the corner of Princes Street and Waterloo Quadrant, and the Quadrant Hotel, also on Waterloo Quadrant, are both nice and close to the University; Hotel De Brett is an interesting adaptive reuse project nearby; and the Hotel Britomart will appeal to those who enjoy top-end hotels.
Adjunct event: Weaving Entanglement Colloquium:
Thursday 24 November 2022, 9.00 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. in the Design Theatre (423-348), 22 Symonds Street.
Hosted by the School’s Future Cities Research Hub, the Weaving Entanglement Colloquium originates from the Weaving Entanglement International Symposium held in 2021 at the Italian Pavilion “Comunità Resilienti” of the Biennale Architettura in Venice and published as a book by Maretti Editore in 2022 (https://marettimanfredi.it/prodotto/weaving-entaglement). Configured as a dialogue between Italy and New Zealand on the policies and practices of conservation, enhancement and transmission of cultural heritage, the Weaving Entanglement Colloquium follows up on the themes of architecture, cultural heritage and landscape in hybrid mode (virtual and face-to-face). Te Pare School of Architecture and Planning was an active participant in the 2021 Venice Biennale exhibition with the project “Learning From Trees”. The colloquium is a free event.
