            In 1998, just as South Island iwi Ngai Tahu was about to sign its Treaty of Waitangi settlement with the government - justice of sorts after seven generations of seeking redress - a former foundryman stepped into the pivotal role of kaiwhakahaere or chair of Te Runanga o Ngai T...ahu - the tribal council of Ngai Tahu. Mark Solomon stood at the head of his iwi at a critical moment and can be credited with the astute stewardship of the settlement that has today made Ngai Tahu a major player in the economy and given it long sought-after self determination. Bold, energetic and visionary, for 18 years Solomon forged a courageous and determined course. Now, in this direct memoir, Ta Mark reflects on his life, on the people who influenced him, on what it means to lead, and the future for both Ngai Tahu and Aotearoa New Zealand.

A magnificent, prize-winning documentation of and tribute to New Zealand's wharenui, big and small. Bishop Muru Walters is a very well-known Anglican minister. He is also a master ...carver, poet, broadcaster and former Maori All Black. His son Robin is a photographer and filmmaker, who is director at Curious Films. Sam Walters, Robin's wife, is a photographer. Together the Walters spent three years visiting some of this country's major meeting houses as well as many of the more humble ones - houses that serve smaller hapu and iwi - to bring together a beautiful photographic book on the meeting house. They are intensively photographed, with detailed shots of their carvings, kowhaiwhai panels, tukutuku panels and much more. Many are photographed during an event, the images conveying a rich sense of life and activity. From north to south, from the east coast to the west, and from ancient wharenui to bold new designs, this handsome book, with its engaging personal text, captures the huge variety of New Zealand's original architecture. It's a book for all New Zealanders to treasure. Winner of Te Korero Pono - Non-Fiction category of the Nga Kupu Ora Maori Book Awards

            A beautiful and important book about the remarkable collaboration between the modernist architect James Hackshaw (a member, for a time, of the famous Group Architects), the painter Colin McCahon and the then young sculptor Paul Dibble on 14 New Zealand buildings - from churches ...to school halls. Drawing on interviews with James Hackshaw before his death and on the McCahon archive, this book brings into the light a body of work and a collaboration that has been little known or examined, even by old McCahon hands. Richly illustrated with Hackshaw's plans, McCahon's drawings, letters and journal entries, and contemporary images of the surviving buildings and artworks, and with expert essays by Peter Simpson, Julia Gatley and Peter Shaw.

            How do we make our older buildings earthquake-safe? This book marks the ten-year anniversary of the 2011 Christchurch earthquakes, which transformed this New Zealand city. It provides a first-hand insight into the typical types of damage that occurred during the sequence and show...cases earthquake-strengthening techniques that worked successfully and others that didn't. The collection of vivid photographs within this book comes from one of the most comprehensive databases on post-earthquake damage to masonry buildings in the world. It is hoped that the information within will inform professionals and students who will work on future retrofit projects, as well as reach the wider audience and increase public awareness of how a safer building environment can be achieved. The lessons learned from Christchurch will assist in preserving much-loved historic buildings and businesses, and they will help save precious lives. Author bio: Dr. Dmytro Dizhur is an award-winning chartered structural engineer who has dedicated his career to the mitigation of earthquake risks for large-scale national and global heritage buildings. Having advised on over 1000 projects for assessing and strengthening masonry buildings, Dizhur is a leader in devising creative and innovative testing methods for optimising strengthening solutions. He has assisted in redefining national and international guidelines for the assessment and earthquake retrofit design of masonry buildings.

            The official book of the 130th anniversary of the Eiffel Tower, one of the most famous monuments in the world At 1,063 feet (324 meters) high, the Tower is a symbol-of Paris and of France, and of modernity. Since its creation in 1889, the Eiffel Tower has been hailed as a feat of... architectural and engineering prowess, one that still reflects the best of what France has to offer the world. Known in France as the Dame de Fer, or Iron Lady, the Tower is the embodiment of a Parisian woman: seductive and always superbly dressed to impress the 6 million visitors she receives each year. This beautiful two-sided book celebrates the dual identity of the Tower: It opens from one side to offer a behind-the-scenes look at the technical aspects of the monument, and from the other side to show off the star herself, the Tower as an icon of France, an inspiration to artists and designers, a symbol of peace and freedom, and so much more.
