We are delighted to have Kerry Hill, Andrew Patterson and Nat Cheshire onboard for the 2011 awards.

Andrew Patterson, Patterson Associates, Auckland & AAA President
In May this year Architect Andrew Patterson’s practice was named by the world’s most searched architectural journal; World Architecture News as one of five firms “whose directional ideas are helping to shape the future of [world] architecture”.
This achievement is unprecedented in New Zealand’s creative community. Patterson Associates are multiple recipients of New Zealand’s highest architectural awards, including the AAA Cavalier Bremworth Unbuilt Architecture Awards , and are the Architects of New Zealand’s only new build 6 star Green rated project- Geyser located in Auckland. Andrew Patterson is the chairman of the Auckland Architectural Association for 2011.
Nat Cheshire is an exciting young architect and designer who moves organically from huge institutional work to the digital fabrication of bespoke door handles and the hand-finishing of reclaimed furniture. He has been working in architecture since the mid-nineties, and ran a boutique practice before joining with Pip to start Cheshire Architects.
Cheshire is a practice formed around the depth of its ideologies, rather than the thinness of styles and project types. It operates across fields of luxury and poverty, newness and age, roughness and refinement. We run parallel programs of research, writing, lecturing, publishing and university teaching as integral parts of this practice.
