Celebrating Julie Stout's Gold: Video 03-Julie's adventurous Spirit

4 March 2022

Julie Stout is its first female recipient to be awarded the Te Kāhui Whaihanga New Zealand Institute of Architects Gold Medal. To celebrate Julie, and to acknowledge Te Kāhui Whaihanga NZIA in their selection, A+W NZ have created seven short videos to capture some of Julie’s infectious spirit, broad interests and influence, and serious commitment to architecture. The videos have been made to acknowledge the importance of Julie’s recognition and its effect on Aotearoa New Zealand’s architectural canon.

The third video in our series of seven has been posted - A+W NZ Julie Stout Gold 03: Julie's Adventurous Spirit

Each video is released weekly, on a Friday.
