Description of this Book

Evening lectures in a cold basement in 1917 mark the meagre beginnings of the University of Auckland's School of Architecture and Planning, now a highly rated and internationally competitive school. The Auckland School holds a special place in New Zealand's architectural and planning history, because it combines the country's oldest school of architecture and its oldest department of planning. Other New Zealand universities did not establish professionally recognised schools and programmes in these disciplines until the 1970s. The history of the Auckland School therefore underscores the development of both disciplines in this country. This book, published on the occasion of the School's centenary, surveys its history, from academic achievement and pedagogical change through to student pranks, strikes and even the occasional revolt. It is a history full of life, energy and strong personalities. The book will appeal to those interested in the history, development and design of New Zealand's towns, cities and buildings, particularly architects, planners, urban designers and heritage conservationists as well as students in all four of these disciplines.
