The NZIA Wellington branch outperformed themselves last night, at the Awards ceremony held at the City Gallery. A large swathe of awards were given out, the full list of which is available at the NZIA’s website complete with pictures, and also a list available on the DominionPost website. For your convenience, we’ve put a selection of the awards up here (and also so that our foreign roving correspondent m-d can see them at his leisure).
Big thanks to Resene of course, who always know how to throw a good party, to John Mills for his Chairmanship, to Brendon Pongia for his crisp Mastery of the Ceremonies, and of course also to the Judges / Jury who toured the country side looking at 2009’s architecture: Angela Foster, Michael Melville, Morten Gjerde, and Cathryn Munro. Other shout outs go to Mani Dunlop for her powerful lungs last night, and a welcome to Paul Kerr Hislop who confesses that he goes to visit the Eye of the Fish every day, but has never been to the Architectural Centre website! Shame on you – but welcome, if you ever get to read this. And congratulations on your award.
So: who got an award then?
