There is a tremendous opportunity for practising architects, academics and postgraduate students to join the fifth six-day Master Class with Richard Leplastrier, Peter Stutchbury, the amazing Ian Athfield and Lindsay Johnston at Awaroa Lodge in the Abel Tasman National Park, top left corner of the south island of New Zealand. The event is again being supported by the Miles Warren Educational Trust.

Richard Leplastrier is a seminal figure in Australian architecture and one of the great “teachers”. He was recipient of the AIA Gold Medal in 1999 and the “Spirit of Nature Wood Architecture Award” (Finland) in 2004, also won by Renzo Piano, Kengo Kuma and Peter Zumthor. Peter Stutchbury is a leading practitioner and has received many awards for his innovative projects including the winning entry in the 2008 ’International Living Steel’ Competition for extreme climate housing in Cherepovets, Russia, now proceeding. He also held the Catedra (Chair) Luis Barragan in Mexico in 2008 and currently has a house in construction in Japan. Lindsay Johnston is former Dean of Architecture at the University of Newcastle, Australia (and interim Head of School at the University of Auckland in 2006) and has been awarded for his innovative low energy environmentally responsive projects. Ian Athfield is immediate past president of the NZIA, Gold Medallist and leading practitioner, much loved by New Zealand architects for his irreverence laced with great insights and wisdom.
