Metalcraft A+W•NZ Writing Award 2016 Winner Announced

The results of the Metalcraft A+W•NZ Writing Award 2016 are in, and we thank the Jury (Dr Julia Gatley, Marianne Riley and Frances Charles) for their full deliberations on all (anonymous) entries.

The Winner is;
Abigail Hurst, for her piece titled '10.11.15'

Abigail receives a ticket to the Deerubbin 2016 Event, held on Milson Island in Australia in March, valued at $880.00.

The Jury also awarded two Highly Commended Certificates, which went to;
Rana Abboud, for her piece titled 'Why Don't Buildings Name Their Authors?' and
Linda Wong, for her piece 'An Invitation'.

All three can be viewed on the A+W•NZ website 'Articles' Page.

The Jury deemed that the standard of writing for this short-piece award was high and that many more of the writing entries should also be published. Watch the Articles Pages on the A+W•NZ website in the upcoming months for more. We hope they inspire more musings and debates and please feel free to respond or add to the conversation created by emailing us at

Portico - by Sophie Hamer

As  mentioned in the NZIA Bulletin of 22 January 2016, a new website has been launched which provides information for those wanting a life in architecture, and for those already mid-flight in their university courses. This valuable resource has been created by Sophie Hamer, who works with Fearon Hay Architects. A+W•NZ constantly receive emails from those interested in architecture, and we are very pleased to now have an informative (and visually stunning) website to connect them to.
