This forum event explores the intersection of architecture and cultural identity with two pioneers in Maori design. Hear from principal at Jasmax and leader of Waka Maia Elisapeta Heta, who champions a bicultural design practice; and Whare Timu, a principal at Warren and Mahoney whose work with Te Matakīrea empowers Maori architecture. 

Engage with their insights on cultural design outcomes, sustainable practices, and the future of First Nations designers in the field. This conversation promises to spark important discussions about equity in architecture and the transformative power of Indigenous perspectives
