School of Architecture


The School of Architecture shares a common focus in teaching, learning and research that centres on sustainability. This is evident in the courses that we offer in many of our programmes.

As a school, we are working towards raising awareness and educating people in this area. We do this through our courses, competitions, lectures and any media we can access.

To date we have been fortunate in receiving support and sponsorship from:

  • Porirua City Council
  • Winstone Wallboards
  • The wider University
  • and many industry professionals.
  • The Benson-Cooper family of Napier (Note: The Benson-Cooper Design for Sustainability awards are no longer available, please view the scholarships website for all current Scholarships and awards on offer, and see the archive for award information and previous winners)
