I've been selected by the Alvar Aalto Academy to present at this year's International Symposium in Rovaniemi, Finland in February.

I've prepared a report which has been selected for publication by the Academy, and I have the opportunity to speak at the Symposium as well. This opportunity is great for my research of Hamilton architecture, but also to showcase modern New Zealand architecture to an international audience of researchers. Two of the original partners of the firm I've written about are still practicing architecture today (both are in their mid-eighties). They're delighted to see their work published internationally! I'm working really hard to get to Finland, I just need a boost, please help! The airfare and accommodation costs are significant, but with your help I can make it!
