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.
