What's it all about?

Warren and Mahoney would love you to join us in our collective studios across Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch to learn all about how we bring ideas to reality using technology, informing the future of the cities we live in.

Cultural engagement through technology, digital preservation of historic buildings, data driven sustainability initiatives, generative design iterations to explore thousands of solutions simultaneously, interactive virtual reality using gaming engines, and visualisation, rendering and animation to bring concepts to our clients and media with exceptional detail.

Future focused Architecture stands at the centre of communities, and at the forefront of technology, informing the way we work, the way we live, and how we interact with the cities we call home.


This event will be presented simultaneously from 3 locations, with each location’s hosts speaking at various points throughout. A series of vignettes will be presented from all locations. Each studio will have a live speaker, who will also be simultaneously live streamed to the other two studios. Speakers will alternate between locations. The Audience in all locations will see a mixture of live presenting, and live steamed presenting.
