Building Better Wellington

(Te Auaha, 65 Dixon St, Wellington 6011)

Following the successful International Band Rotunda Architecture Ideas Competition in 2018, ADEDU and Te Auaha – WelTec are organizing Building Better Wellington, an Architecture Exhibition in April 2019. 

This is a great opportunity understand the new generation of local and international architects and designers who are positively transforming our capital city. They will not only show their works, but also give you valuable advice to make improvements to your homes or workplaces. We also have invited leading experts and researchers in the areas of sustainability, age-friendly design, construction management and quantity surveying who will share their valuable knowledge and experience with visitors.

In addition, during this two-week exhibition, the top ten design proposals from our International Architecture Ideas Competition to redesign the Band Rotunda will be presented to all Wellingtonians. Local architects and designers will share their visions and seek understand the public’s aspirations for the building.

Unlike other architecture exhibitions, Building Better Wellington offers visitors an opportunity to meet experts in home design, construction management, energy efficiency, and age-friendly architecture. Practicing architects and engineers will be there to help you, as well as leading researchers from Victoria University of Wellington, the Wellington Institute of Technology and the Open Polytechnic, who will share research with you. 

Building Better Wellington will be exhibited at Te Auaha, New Zealand Institute of Creativity, 65 Dixon street, Wellington between the 16th and 28th of April 2019. The Gallery Space has excellent street exposure, and easy access from both Cuba and Dixon Streets.
