Diverse Practice

client: Architecture + Women, 2013

Curated by Jan Smitheram and Kerstin Thompson, the exhibition is part of DIVERSE PRACTICE: a symposium conversation, exhibition, and lectures by Justine Clark and Debbie Ryan: 8—11 October, 2013, School of Architecture, Victoria University of Wellington.

Exhibition design and typography: Catherine Griffiths, in collaboration with Kerstin Thompson.

Six questions, 95 respondents, eight concertina sets, 47 metres; typeset in Tiempos Headline designed by Kris Sowersby; printed on a Risograph at Index by Amy Yalland; hand-assembled by Catherine Griffiths; installed by Catherine Griffiths, Jan Smitheram and Sharon Jansen.

The questions for this exhibition were developed from a questionnaire prepared by Tania Davidge, Elycia de Guia, Anna Jeffery, Bernadette Wilson and Justine Clark for a survey for architects working in Victoria, Australia. The questions were open to response from women and men.

Supported by Victoria University of Wellington School of Architecture; New Zealand Institute of Architects; Architecture + Women.
