Over the last two days 12 students from Auckland University, Unitec and Victoria University have been presenting their final year project as part of the NZIA Graphisoft Student Design Awards.
Graphisoft New Zealand is extremely proud to be the sponsor of this event and I have enjoyed attending a number of the presentations.
The presentation quality of this years awards is outstanding. The diverse range of schemesÂ fromÂ theÂ Porosity of Architecture to Extra Sensory Experiences of Architecture to a collapsible WhareÂ Â is certain to make the judging interesting.
Tonight is the official award ceremony where one student will be picked as the best in New Zealand – Â I have chosen my winner but having not attended all the presentations I could well be (and mostÂ likelyÂ will be) wrong!
