The exhibition and series of talks captures the work of a group of Lower Hutt architects, an artist,
musician and motorbike rider who lived and worked in Lower Hutt in the 1950s.

It was an era of radical and exciting new ideas in the Hutt - buildings were curved and set in park like settings and the place was alive with new bands, motorbikes and the milk bar social scene.

Christine McCarthy - Sunday, 28 October.

Christine from Victoria Architecture School will talk about Hutt architects Bill Wiliam Toomath, Bill Alington and James T Craig, "Frank Words: Toomath, Writing, Le Corbusier and the Hutt".

In 1964 the Journal of the New Zealand Institute of Architects published an article by Bill Toomath over a decade after his meeting with Le Corbusier in 1952. This talk explores this article on Le Corbusier, and Toomath's other writing about architecture, in order to consider the theme of Architectural and Social Upheaval with reference to Toomath-designed houses in the Hutt.

Christine McCarthy is the president of the Architectural Centre and teaches at the School of Architecture at Victoria University.
