Event Description


Justin Wright from Assembly Architects + Daniel Gudsell from Abodo Wood

Crafting the Cardona Cabin

Justin and Daniel discuss the inspiration behind the Cardona Cabin – a landmark building in the middle of Wanaka’s Cardrona Valley. The building, designed to be a modern reinterpretation of a Central Otago shepherds hut showcases some of New Zealand’s finest “home grown” materials, craftsmanship and design.

Bryce Dunlop podcast with Daniel Gudsell and live Q+A

Builder Bryce Dunlop discusses construction in an alpine environment, along with the challenges it poses on materials. Bryce explains the issues he faced building Cardrona Cabin – set in New Zealand’s Central Otago alpine region.

Bryce also touches on a rammed earth project he has completed, along with the challenges around reducing construction waste on building sites.

Interview with Hamid Hassanzadeh from Parametric Architecture

DK interviews Hamid Hassanzadeh about his love of parametric architecture and mixed used technologies.
