Rate this:
Douglas Lloyd Jenkins brings together in one volume a selection of key essays (28 in total) that have shaped 20th century New Zealand architecture and architectural thinking. The essays have traditionally appeared in journals and magazines, but with an increasing popular and scholarly interest in NZ architecural history, particularly as it pertains to the 20th century, there is considerable renewed interest in these difficult-to-locate works. Each decade is well represented, particularly the 1940s and 1950s with the influences of the Central European refugees such as Plischke, Porsolt, Kulka and Cacala and the renowned Group Architects, and the 1970s with the innovative philosophies of Peter Beaven, Miles Warren, Chris Brooke-White and David Mitchell, both in the areas of residential and commercial architecture.
