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.

Ken Davis - Saturday, 27 October

Gordon Wilson, The Government Architect
Ken will focus on Gordon Wilson, the Government Architect and his influence during this modernist era in New Zealand.
