This hard back book of 180 pages, The New Zealand House, was written by Michael Fowler and Robert Van de Voort and published by Lansdowne Press in 1983 as a 1st Edition.

24 x 32 cms ; illustrations ; good condition.

' The New Zealand House ' is a lavishly illustrated celebration of the evolving history of housing in this country : the influences which caused it to differ from housing in other parts of the world and the effects on its development by overseas architects as well as the undoubted talents of New Zealand architects.

The story starts with the first Europeans to set foot on New Zealand soil : the shelters, houses and homesteads they constructed from the timber they felled and the stone they quarried.

Early settlers and the generations that followed used these indigenous resources to build and towns carved out of forests or raised on the plains.

The story continues as new ideas and new materials are introduced, ever-changing, progressive. The result is a kaleidoscope of architectural styles that depicts the uniqueness of the New Zealand house.

Michael Fowler's well researched and descriptive commentary and Robert Van de Voort's 369 excellent colour plates combine to make this personal view of New Zealand's architectural heritage appeal to the widest possible audience.

But this is more than just an architectural record - it is a sumptuous appraisal of a story still in the making.

A very attractive book.
