Communiqué Lecture Series

Communiqué is an annual lecture series, hosted by the School of Architecture and Planning in the National Institute of Creative Arts and Industries at The University of Auckland. The program for each Communiqué series centers on issues relevant to architecture and planning, but intentionally seeks to present an expansive view on these subjects. Architecture and planning are spatial arts and as such, speakers are drawn from a wide range of disciplines, industries and practices that engage with spatial issues. Communiqué speakers are school staff and senior research students, as well as visiting professionals and academics from New Zealand and around the world. The theme for this year's series is 'A Place To Live: Housing in Auckland' and is being supported by Transforming Cities at the University of Auckland.

The lectures are free and open to the public.
