Dion Gosling, SAPIA member and Director of 106 Architects + Third Place Thinking™, has an innate understanding of the subtleties and technical requirements of outdoor sports fields and indoor sports halls, bringing perspective from the athlete, administrator, coach, management and Board level.
Since 1990 when travelling the world as part of the NZ Men’s Hockey Team, and through roles with the NZ Olympic Committee and now as Chair of the Oceania Hockey Federation Competitions and Events Committee, Dion has become a leader in the holistic assembly of outdoor and indoor sports facilities development.
Through Third Place Thinking™, Dion provides thought leadership and change in how we connect our sports facilities with our communities. Dion has undertaken masterplanning and feasibility work, business case development, concept and detailed design, delivery and project management of various projects related to the Sports and Play Industry sector.
