We're delighted to announce that this year's Home of the Year lectures will be given by Cathleen McGuigan, the New York-based editor in chief of Architectural Record magazine, the most important architecture magazine in the US. 

Cathleen is giving talks in Auckland (on February 19) and Christchurch (on February 21) on the topic of New American Urbanism - how architects are rejuvenating US cities, and what New Zealand can learn from them. 

Cathleen will be in conversation with HOME editor Jeremy Hansen, and will show a number of ingenious urban developments from a range of US cities. Please come along, as it's going to be a great and stimulating talk. 

Cathleen is visiting as the international member of our Home of the Year 2013 jury. We're very grateful to our Home of the Year partner, Altherm Window Systems, for making Cathleen's visit possible. 

The details:

Auckland 6.30pm, Tuesday February 19
Auditorium, Auckland Museum

Christchurch 6.30pm, Thursday February 21
Lecture Theatre C2, University of Canterbury
