New Zealand Festival of Architecture

Watch out for the NZ Festival of Architecture in September! Keynote speakers are two architects from LA who practice under the name ‘Design, Bitches’ talking at St Andrews College Chapel on September 14th. They promise to be seriously entertaining.

About Design, Bitches:

In 2010, Catherine Johnson and Rebecca Rudolph founded ‘Design, Bitches’ with a bold and irreverent vision to make architecture significant in daily life. Their multidisciplinary firm draws inspiration from the duos’ eclectic expertise in the areas of design, art, and pop culture.

Based in Los Angeles, Catherine and Rebecca collaborate on an international range of projects that scale from brand identity and commercial spaces to ground-up residential and cultural buildings. They work closely with clients to develop creative solutions responsive to location and user experience. By experimenting with materials and graphics, they provide durable contemporary designs that wink at history.
