To celebrate Hutt Heritage Week, the Architectural and Social Upheaval in the Hutt exhibition's speaker series.

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.
