Q Theatre, The Cloud at Queens Wharf, the Geyser Building, several education centres and an elegant cottage on Great Barrier Island are among the 28 projects honoured in this year’s Auckland Architecture Awards programme, run by the New Zealand Institute of Architects.

Attending the awards presentation at the Viaduct Events Centre on 10 October, Awards’ jury convenor, Auckland architect Blair Farquhar commented: “This has been a very good year for Auckland architecture….You’d expect tougher times to affect the number of entries into these Awards, and that’s certainly the case with some types of architecture, such as commercial buildings. However, just as fine wine comes from scrappy soil, so good architecture emerges from challenging circumstances.”
