Architect of the Angels
By Susan Maclean

The Churches of Frederick de Jersey Clere

Contains numerous photos throughout

The story - and churches - of Frederick de Jersey Clere, an architect who made an enduring contribution to our landscape and heritage

The architectural legacy of Frederick Clere is increasingly appreciated. In Wellington, St Mary of the Angels, St Andrew's on The Terrace, St Mary's Karori, and St Gerard's Monastery are much admired. Through the lower half of the North Island and south to Kaikoura over a hundred churches were built to his designs. Most are still in use, in city and picturesque rural settings - proof of their lasting value.

Of Clere's secular buildings, the Museum of Wellington City and Sea and the Wharf Offices nearby have a new lease of life, the latter as luxury apartments and the home of the NZ Academy of Fine Arts. Restoration of his churches and preservation of other buildings such as the Naval Artillery Building, the Thorndon fire station and -e numerous private houses show that Clere has plenty of champions today.

This book focuses on Clere's churches, in the context of his professional career, life and interests.
