In this public lecture, Professor Daniel Brown tells ten tales about how a work of Architecture finds its Voice. These tales draw from painting, sculpture, film, music, poetry, philosophy, religion, politics, linguistics, cultural studies, Māori and Pasifika studies, and the classics. One story describes how the Māori karanga becomes embedded into an architectural design. Another story describes how – through architecture – a Pasifika student is reintroduced to her cultural heritage by the tales of her maternal grandmother. Daniel reflects upon how the Humanities and Social Sciences provide a fundamental voice to all New Zealand industries and professions, especially architecture. Professor Brown graduated from Yale University and is a recipient of the New Zealand National Award for Sustained Excellence in Tertiary Teaching as well as the Fulbright Fellowship.
