11 January 2023

The A+W NZ Tātuhi / Drawing Architecture: Sarah Treadwell Archive annual aquisition is Sea Wall Erosion, Lise Jansen-Luke.

Lise’s drawing, which includes both the aluminium plate and the print, is from their thesis One of these is not like the other: Our mark on an eroding Coastline at Waipapa Taumata Rau the University of Auckland. It has been selected in recognition of the use of craft and technology in aesthetic and generative ways and maintaining a focus on drawing in the design process.

Each year, the author of the selected drawing also receives a koha of $500 as a thank you for the continual use of the drawing in the archive. A big thank you to our archive sponsor Metalcraft, who makes this possible.

The primary purpose of the A+W NZ Tātuhi / Drawing Architecture Archive is to record drawing styles and influences over years and decades, and we hope that the archive becomes a valuable resource for students, architects and historians of the future. The annual selection is made from end-of-year thesis projects from all architecture schools in New Zealand by a team led by Sarah Treadwell. The foundational 2017 drawing is by Sarah, whom the archive is named after. Subsequent selections have been from Lusitania Vete (2018), Matthew Boyuan Cao (2019), Devyani Sethi (2020), Jonothan Morrish (2021), Mikaela King (2022). Lise’s drawing will be the seventh addition to the digital archive.
