Tim Ross: The Mid Century Project

CoCA is excited to present the first New Zealand iteration of the Mid Century Project.

Sydney comedian Television presenter and “self described design nerd” Tim Ross explores the romanticism of Modernist architecture though a nostalgic eye. This exhibition of poster art, photos and video installations features iconic buildings from Christchurch and beyond.

Tim ‘Rosso’ Ross - comedian, presenter, and design nerd - has a long standing passion for architecture and design. Tim’s inventive take on architecture and design has seen him win an AWGIE award for his top rating ABC TV series Streets of Your Town. In 2016 he was invited to speak at the opening of the London Design Museum. In March 2018, Design Nation opened at Sydney’s Powerhouse Museum. In May 2018, Tim was awarded the National Trust Heritage Award for Advocacy, in July 2018 he presented the Heritage Council of Victoria’s annual address and in November 2018 he presented the Griffin Lecture for the Australian Institute of Architecture at the National Press Club in Canberra.
