Victoria University of Wellington's School of Architecture is celebrating its 40th anniversary on 18-19 March 2016 and you're invited to attend.

The School was formally established in 1975, and in March 1976 the first class of architecture students entered the School.

On Friday 18 March an academic symposium titled 'Global Architecture in the 1970s' will take place from 9am-6pm at the School of Architecture. The day will then conclude with a dinner at The Boatshed on Wellington's waterfront from 7.15pm. Tickets for both these events will be available to purchase and reserve from 18 January 2016 on Eventfinda.

On the Saturday an alumni celebration will take place at the School of Architecture from 10am-6pm. Presentations from staff and alumni of the School will be shared throughout the day. Tickets for this event will also need to be booked on Eventfinda.
