Title:Raupo to Deco - Wellington Styles and Architects 1840-1940
Celebrating a century of architectural achievement in Wellington, this book links the progression of style characteristics — from raupo thatching to art deco ornament — with the development of the city. It contains biographical information about more than 300 architects associated with Wellington at various times — plus photos, elevations and reproductions of rare plans. Detailed appendices and an illustrated glossary complete the book. The author’s last collaboration was the prize-winning Ring Around the City, documenting the development of Wellington’s suburbs.
