Modern architecture in Wellington

Modern architecture comes to Wellington in the form of a travelling exhibition of modern classics from Frank Lloyd Wright and JJP Oud, and also work from the likes of Le Corbusier, Mies can der Rohe, Walter Gropius and other early twentieth-century architectural luminaries.
It is based on an exhibition in Stuttgart from 1927 which toured then through 17 European cities. German curator Prof. Karin Kirsch selected buildings and architects whose approach seem to be pointing to the future even more today than they did back then.
The exhibition hits Wellington on Wednesday 21 February with a 6 pm opening at the School of Architecture & Design in Vivian St.

Details of the Wellington dates here. More details of the travelling exhibition itself here and here.
