HOME: Lecture by Brian MacKay Lyons – 6pm VUW Student Union

Brian MacKay-Lyons is a sheep farmer and sea kayaker who also happens to be a world-renowned architect. Born and raised in Arcadia, Nova Scotia, Brian studied in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. He has worked and studied in China, Japan and Italy, returning to Nova Scotia in 1983 to challenge the region’s ‘brain drain’ and make an architectural contribution to the area. Since then, he’s become a leading proponent of regionalist architecture, designing a bold portfolio of houses and, increasingly, important public buildings in Canada and abroad. He has won five Canadian Governor-General’s medals for architecture, as well as the American Institute of Architects’ Honor Award. Don’t miss your chance to hear from this visionary architect on his New Zealand visit.
