An exploration of light and materials, Lace(d) has been through a number of iterations.
Originally part of The Joy of Architecture, Auckland Architecture Week 2005, Lace(d) was conceived, designed and built by Jessamine Fraser, Jaqui Chan, and Julianne Gee (all from Cook Sargisson & Pirie Ltd) and Kate Beilby (Scarlet Architects Ltd), with the support of Lindley Naismith, Scarlet Architects Ltd (formerly Aimer Naismith Architects Ltd) and Marshall Cook, Cook Sargisson & Pirie Architects Ltd. This first installation was at Object Space in Ponsonby, Auckland.
A second installation was organised by Lindley Naismith for Women + Architecture, 2013 and was installed at Silo Park, on Auckland's waterfront. Mark II was built by Jessamine Fraser (Fraser Architects Ltd), Clio Chiu (Scarlet Architects Ltd), and Vesna Palligora, Kimberly Browne, Aish Basrur and Claire Fontaine (all from Cook Sargisson & Pirie Ltd).
Finally, in 2014, a permanent home was found in the Newmarket garden of Lindley Naismith and John Balasoglou. This smaller work was erected by Jessamine Fraser and Clio Chiu.
