Architecture and design firm Jasmax’s kaihautū whaihanga, Elisapeta Heta, received the President’s Award from the New Zealand Institute of Architects for his influence as a change maker and cultural leader in indigenous design in Aotearoa in New Zealand and internationally.

NZIA President Judi Keith-Brown said Ms Heta has contributed tirelessly to the Institute, including giving her Maori name, Te Kāhui Whaihanga, and helping to implement a pact with Ngā Aho, the national network of Maori design professionals.

At Jasmax, she plays a key role in advancing the firm’s bicultural design strategy and commitment to excellence in cultural design.

As head of Jasmax’s Maori cultural design roopū, Waka Māia, she has contributed cultural design outputs for projects such as Tāmaki Makaurau’s City Rail Link and the New Zealand Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai.
