For this Devonport Heritage evening we are combining a talk on the very present issues of the Auckland waterfront, coupled with insight into the past lives and history of one of the Devonport streets that certainly is a part of the waterfront - Anne Street.
Come and join us and hear from renowned ‘activist architect’ Julie Stout, Julie Stout, who was recently honoured as a Distinguished Fellow by the NZIA. Julie started her practice Mitchell & Stout Architects with partner David Mitchell in the late 1980s. Julie is president of lobby group Urban Auckland and, alongside architecture, is highly interested in urban design and in creating a better built environment for Auckland City.
Julie will bring insight and opinion into the very topical issue of Auckland’s waterfront and its future with Auckland Port, especially given the recent decision by Auckland council to grant the consent for the ‘dolphins’ enabling larger cruise liners to berth at Queens Wharf .
In addition we will present another in our series of the history of Devonport Streets - this time we focus on Anne Street, a street with a rich and vibrant history very much allied to the waterfront and the Navy base - colourful to say the least!
Join us at 7.30pm on the 9th May at the Yacht club for an interesting evening to celebrate our heritage.
