Patrick is a founding Director of Architectus and has been responsible for the design leadership of the practice’s major projects throughout New Zealand. He was awarded the highest honour in New Zealand architecture – the Te Kāhui Whaihanga New Zealand Institute of Architects’ Gold Medal in 2014 in recognition of his contribution to the body of work produced by Architectus.
Under his design leadership, Architectus has created an unrivalled record of award-winning projects across all building types. Architectus’ work has been recognised for its clarity of intent and resolution, its careful reading of context and content and ability to advance a broad cultural agenda. Heritage informs all the work whether it be at building or urban scale, or as a particular focus. Recent projects include ongoing contributions to the remaking of the Wynyard Quarter on Auckland’s waterfront that build on this marine industrial setting , a number of additions to the campus of the University of Auckland ,and the Centennial Chapel at St. Andrew’s College in Christchurch ,which retains a memory of its past by integrating and celebrating elements of its lost heritage, while responding sensitively to needs of the present.
Patrick is an astute and articulate architectural commentator. He has maintained a long running association with both schools of architecture in Auckland as a critic and tutor, including a two year Adjunct Professorship at Unitec. He has lectured widely on the work of Architectus both nationally and internationally, and contributed to a wide range of industry groups and organisations and is a past President of Te Kāhui Whaihanga New Zealand Institute of Architects.
