MoreFollowing the work of a group of architects who, in 1946 at the University of Auckland, established themselves as the Architectural Group, this compilation assesses one of New Zealand’s most important architectural firms. With contributions from leading architectural writers and filled with new photography of the houses built by the Group’s members, this volume considers not only the quality of the buildings produced but also the influence they have had on New Zealand architecture. Included are biographies of and interviews with the men and women of the firm whose goal was to create architecture that would complement local conditions: a temperate climate and an informal lifestyle.
