CEFPI has launched in New Zealand!
The CEFPI (Council for Educational Facility Planners International) organisation, which aims to bring together architects and educators, designers, administrators and suppliers, has for the last ten years had a strong presence in Australia. Now, we're excited that the organisation is set to grow on this side of the Tasman too.
Our next site visit will be on May 10th at Hingaia School, the most recent school to be built in the Auckland area. There will be the opportunity to hear from the architect and principal, and also to have a tour of the learning studios.
In 2012 the intention is to grow the organization in New Zealand in order to provide a forum and network for people interested in school building design, from both an architectural and pedagogical perspective. There will be opportunities to attend regular site visits, seminars and forums as well as the CEFPI conference to be held in May next year on the Gold Coast. There are also exciting things happening on the CEFPI front in New Zealand next year. More to follow...
Anyone interested in coming along to the site visit or who would like to get involved please email for further details and to be added to the database.
