Ted McCoy Public Lecture 2022: Game of Architecture 

This talk by Anthony Hoete utilises Ted McCoy’s book ‘A Southern Architecture’ as a springboard to dive into his own ‘Game of Architecture.’ As an interrogation of the work of WHAT_architecture, the RIBA chartered practice Hoete founded in London, the proposition is that architecture is a game and played by a set of rules and roles that the architect is not entirely in control of. Yet, with the appropriate strategies, the game could be positively transformed.

Thursday 15 September
Venue: O Block (Ōwheo Building), Otago Polytechnic, 115 Anzac Avenue.
Doors open 6.00pm with a 6.30pm start. 
Free entry.
This event is kindly supported by Schneider Electric, Naylor Love, Design Windows & Allegion. Venue kindly provided by Otago Polytechnic.
