Morals of the Modern

Morals of the Modern: Changing Values of Modern Architecture
6pm, Thu 28 January 2010
Adam Auditorium at City Gallery, Civic Square, Wellington
Sam Kebbell will chair a roundtable panel featuring Julia Gatley, Bill Toomath, and Gerald Melling.

This discussion considers the changes in moral outlook throughout Bill Toomath’s career. Have the moral pursuits of post WWII modern architecture been exhausted? Surrendered? Superseded? Or simply forgotten? What are the predominant values of contemporary architecture? What is at stake now? If architecture captures a societies’ values, then what do we value? What should we value?

    Thanks for your message. The Bill Toomath panel discussion is currently full with places reserved for invited guests. This event was incorrectly listed on the Architecture Centre’s website as a Public Programme when it is actually an invitation only event taking place in the fixed-capacity Adam Auditorium which we expect to fill once rsvps have been received. There are two other NZIA accredited public programmes during the run of the exhibition which may be of interest;

  2. That’s really unfortunate. Our apologies – we did not realise that it was invitation only. And we didn’t even get an invitation either! Oh well, at least we presume the exhibition will be good, and open the day after this event.
