You’re invited to the first Ockham Lecture of 2023, featuring Objectspace’s first international guest in quite some time.
Stephanie Donigi, a Senior Associate at Architectus’ Brisbane office is visiting the gallery to spend time with our current exhibition Oceanic Architectural Routes and deliver a lecture on her experiences working in Papua New Guinea and Australia on buildings of cultural significance.
Donigi’s visit to Aotearoa and lecture are made possible with support from Te Kāhui Whaihanga New Zealand Institute of Architects Auckland Branch. Visit the NZIA event listing here.
Stephanie Donigi is from the East Sepik Province in Papua New Guinea and Australia. Growing up mixed race in both nations has shaped her thinking about the concept of belonging and what it means to belong from a relatively young age. These insights drive Stephanie’s passion for inclusive design today. She enjoys projects that offer opportunities to explore community identity, relationships to place, cultural inter-relationships, and historical and socio-political contexts.
Stephanie's recent projects include the Papua New Guinea National Museum and Art Gallery refurbishment and the Eromanga Natural History Museum.
This event is presented alongside Oceanic Architectural Routes: The photographic archive of Mike Austin: Presented by Architectus. Our thanks to The Purple Gift for providing special support for public programming around this exhibition.
The Ockham Lecture series is an annual programme of lectures and panel discussions across different themes that critically engage with craft, design and architecture. This programme is supported by Objectspace's Lead Partner Ockham Residential.
