Event details

Maurice & I

Duration: 98 minutes

Maurice & I is a feature-length documentary celebrating Sir Miles Warren and Maurice Mahoney’s hugely influential architectural partnership, and their legacy that was all but lost in the devastating Christchurch earthquakes. This remarkable partnership, their approach to design and their signature use of materials transformed the face of Christchurch in 60s and 70s, and influenced their architectural peers throughout New Zealand. Within a short decade Christchurch was to shrug off its reputation for somewhat stuffy Georgian and neo-gothic architecture for a distinctive ‘brutalist’ style that was bold, modern and often controversial.

Then in 2011, almost the entire built legacy of Warren and Mahoney was destroyed. Among the buildings which suffered major damage was the Christchurch Town Hall, regarded by many, including the architects themselves, as their finest work. Internationally renowned for its elegant, brutalist form and sophisticated interiors, the Christchurch Town Hall revolutionised the design approach to performance spaces and acoustic engineering.

As the Christchurch Town Hall’s fate hangs in the balance, Sir Miles Warren and Maurice Mahoney reflect on their remarkable partnership. Maurice & I combines rare archival footage alongside exclusive interviews with Sir Miles and Maurice Mahoney, including their final interview together.

This filming at this date and time will be followed by a 30-minute Q&A session. Bring the team for a night out together and watch the film!

Meet our Q&A facilitators:

ADNZ Life Registered Architect - Graham Linwood

Graham spent his early working life as a Ministry of Works Draughting Cadet in Christchurch and then a number of years with the Christchurch City Council as a senior draughtsman/clerk of works.

He moved to Hastings with his young family in 1977 and purchased a half share in a draughting practice. This lasted four years and he was then a sole practitioner.

In 1981, along with other established designers, he joined NZFAD, the fore runner of ADNZ and put a lot of energy into the revision of the structure of the organisation and establishing it South of Hawke’s Bay.

In 1983 he was made National President and was conferred Life Membership on 1987.

Study at Massey University in 1993-1994 resulted in a Diploma of Business Studies in Dispute Resolution and Fellowship of the Arbitrators and Mediators Institute in 1995.

Further study at Auckland University led to Registration as an Architect in 1997and fellowship of NZ Institute of Architects in 2015. In 2016 he presented the Institutes submission to the Parliamentary Select Committee on the Construction Contract Act revision.

In 2005 Graham was asked to be a member of the MBE working party on Design licensing and then to assist with assessor training. He took on a role as an assessor for the LBP Design and retired from the position two years ago.

ADNZ Professional Member and Regional Chair - Ben Carrington

Ben set up his own practice Carrington & Co. Architecture Ltd in 2014 focusing on residential design and light commercial. Ben began his career working on large commercial developments in London, then to return to Hawkes Bay to work for a local architect firm then a building company.

Ben believes that good architecture will enhance the way people connect with buildings which in turn would have a positive impact on their lives. Building design should complement the surrounding environment.
