New Zealand architecture has come of age, with a number of New Zealand practices attracting international attention and local architecture awards provoking wide public interest and debate. In this expert, intelligently ordered survey of contemporary residential architecture, leading architectural photographer Patrick Reynolds and Architecture New Zealand magazine editor John Walsh take New Zealand residential architecture's pulse. Not only are there magnificent photographs of 25 of the best new New Zealand houses but there is also intelligent, incisive and thoughtful text that gets to grips with the strengths of each house and the issues facing architects, clients and planners as New Zealanders become ever more sophisticated in their architectural desires.
