BYPASS PODCAST

We are so proud to present Bypass Podcast, a brand new platform where we get the chance to explore different ways of publishing architecture.


Bypass Podcast is a research practice that explores the potential of audio as a means of communicating architecture. Each month, we will release an episode that has come from this research, the ‘cream of the crop’. We are constantly experimenting, so each episode will be totally different from the next. You’ll never know what each month will bring (and neither will we)!

What you can expect from each release is a bold and unique perspective on Architectural Publication in Aotearoa. We are grateful to have an audience for this research, it keeps our team accountable, motivated, and excited to test out new ideas.

EPISODE THREE

Live Environments.


If these walls could talk! Our guest today is a Victorian building by the name of Vicky B. She has been on Auckland's Karangahape Road for 180 years, designed by settler and architect Edward Bartley. Vicky used to be architecture, but now she's just another building. It's the same tired story; "desperate heritage seeking repairs and occupational fulfilment". Miss Vicky B is leaky, lonely, and looking for love (or at least a decent landlord)...

EPISODE FOUR

My Bach is a $10 Red.


How might one access a sense of escape, or holiday, or break from reality, within their means?

As the summer peels away, we reflect on the bach, and the nightclub. What do we get to get away in? Poet Jai Ngaranoa Selkirk performs "Takiwira’s Finest". We visit architect Pete Bossley and designer Miriam Van Wezel at their bach in Orua Bay, Aotearoa. Gabi Maffey and Max Rodhouse conjure up a karaoke moment featuring Pete.

A whole industry of dumb hours like it’s smart.
