What do you do when your two passions are at odds? Find a third.
In his talk, architect and artist Matt Liggins shares his journey of seeking happiness in between: a third space that sits in the middle of the limitless and the limited. To do so, he’ll design homes for the homeless, hand out triangles to strangers and build a skyscraper… kind of. Ultimately, he’ll find that it’s teaching that enables him to blend his two passions. As a Professional Teaching Fellow at Te Pare, The University of Auckland’s School of Architecture and Planning, Matt has the freedom to create, critique and test his projects as if they’re in a slow cooker. It’s also in teaching that Matt has found his happiness and, more importantly, his rock.
