Docomomo International would like to share the Australasian Engineering Heritage Conference – The Future of the Past, organized by the Engineering New Zealand’s Otago Heritage Chapter. The pre-conference tour will be held between 11-14 November 2021 and the conference will be held between 14-17 November 2021, in Dunedin.
The theme – The Future of the Past – focuses on heritage engineering and technology that has endured, been redeveloped, undergone restoration or repurposing to claim a place in the future.
To whet your appetite ahead of the conference, experience a three-day pre-conference tour taking in the best of Southland’s engineering heritage across Queenstown, Milford Sound, the South Coast and Invercargill.
The Conference opens on the evening of 14 November at Toitū, Otago Settlers Museum, where delegates and partners will be welcomed by Mana Whenua.
Conference proceedings on 15 and 16 November will be based at the Dunedin Centre, part of the Dunedin Town Hall complex, located in the central city. It is within 10 to 15 minutes’ walk from the University, museums, the thriving warehouse precinct and a range of hotel and motel accommodation.
