Photography by Robin Morrison.

"NEW ZEALAND ARCHITECTURE surveys New Zealand's rich architectural history, trends, innovations and controversies. Author Peter Shaw and photographer Robin Morrison explore the way the country's architecture reflects the spirit and aspirations of its inhabitants. The full diversity of architectural styles is examined, including:

* Maori functional simplicity

* the elaborate Antipodean Gothic and Victorian domestic styles of the 19th century

* the impressive neo-classical and Edwardian Baroque styles

* the fashionable arts and crafts and neo-Georgian of the early 20th century

* the post-modernism of the 1980s

"The leading exponents of these styles and their philosophies are also surveyed."


* Raupo, timber and stone

* the birth of Antipodean culture

* cottages, villas and country houses

* the architecture of prosperity

* changing influences in domestic architecture

* the conservative solution

* modern, moderne and deco

* the search for the vernacular

* architecture as individualism

* experiment, debate and demolition
