Free. Bookings required.
Join us alongside architect, Roger Walker ONZM, on a tour to see some of the significant pieces of architecture at the doorstep of The Dowse Art Museum around Lower Hutt.
This tour is presented in conjunction with Deanna Dowling’s work in SOLO 2018. ‘Young wood is restless’ is a reflection on impermanence and the cyclical building practices at the heart of Japanese construction. This was known as the Metabolist movement which emerged as a post-war architectural movement fusing ideas ideas about organic growth and architectural mega-structures. Roger Walker is a prominent Wellington-based architect, drawing on the Metabolist ethos throughout his practice including buildings around the Wellington and Lower Hutt region.
