Architecture in an Expanded Field
Architecture in an Expanded Field
This book is a collection of essays stemming from the 2013 symposium, marking the 120th anniversary of women's suffrage in Aotearoa, New Zealand, and the 1993 exhibition 'Constructive Agenda: 60 years of Women in Architecture in New Zealand - hosted by W+A.NZ, called Architecture in an Expanded Field. Interested participants were asked to send in an essay based on their presentation at the symposium. This volume is a collection of those essays, with a preface by Sarah Treadwell and an introduction by Lucy Treep. As a form of reply to the symposium, an essay by Amanda Reynolds (who wasn't at the symposium) is included. All the contributors to the volume graduated with a BArch from Auckland University and have ended up working in fields separate to, but in some way aligned with, architecture. All the contributors are women. As one of the remits of A+W is to publish the work of women to establish a permanent record of women and architecture in NZ, this volume sits centrally to A+W's aims.

Army Fundamentals From Making Soldiers to the Limits of the Military Instrument
Army Fundamentals From Making Soldiers to the Limits of the Military Instrument
How does an Army recruit attain an identity with soldierhood? What do they give up and what do they gain? What happens when a young officer, indoctrinated in a military way of thinking, is thrust into the academic, free-thinking environment of a university? When military units are deployed in insecure environments to enhance security and governance while facilitating reconstruction and development, what separates the humanitarian from the soldier? And are the roles in fact compatible? The New Zealand Army is facing challenges in recruiting and retaining women - how does the Anzac legend and national identity contribute to that? Can a modern warrior be a woman? Do NZDF personnel on deployment really 'punch above their weight' or is this a myth? What happens when our forces overseas move into policing? All these major issues are addressed in this fascinating and compelling book, in which expert authors delve deep into New Zealand's modern-day Army.As the foreword notes,this book delves 'into some of the seemingly idiosyncratic aspects of the New Zealand Army's culture, value system, enculturation practices and operational learning with vignettes, case studies, and observations that help explain military purpose, action and effect.
It shows how the New Zealand Army's traditions, practices and values seek to fit its members to cope, survive and succeed in contemporary operational settings.'

Artefacts of Encounter Cooks Voyages Colonial Collecting & Museum Histories
Artefacts of Encounter Cooks Voyages Colonial Collecting & Museum Histories
The Pacific artefacts and works of art collected during the three voyages of Captain James Cook and the navigators, traders and missionaries who followed him are of foundational importance for the study of art and culture in Oceania. These collections are representative not only of technologies or belief systems but of indigenous cultures at the formative stages of their modern histories, and exemplify Islanders' institutions, cosmologies and social relationships. Recently, scholars from the Pacific and further afield, working with Pacific artefacts at the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology in Cambridge (MAA), have set out to challenge and rethink some longstanding assumptions on their significance. The Cook voyage collection at the MAA is among the four or five most important in the world, containing over 200 of the 2000-odd objects with Cook voyage provenance that are dispersed throughout the world. The collection includes some 100 artefacts dating from Cook's first voyage. This stunning book catalogues this collection, and its cutting-edge scholarship sheds new light on the significance of many artefacts of encounter.

At the Margin of Empire
At the Margin of Empire
In this remarkable biography, Jennifer Ashton uses the life of one man as a unique lens through which to view the early history of New Zealand. Born in Scotland in 1818, John Webster came to New Zealand via Australia in 1841 (after a violent encounter in the outback which he just escaped unscathed) and spent most of the rest of his life in Hokianga. At the Margin of Empire charts his colourful experiences carving out a fortune as the region's leading timber trader and cultivating connections with the leading figures of the day, Maori and Pakeha. Webster fought alongside Tamati Waka Nene in the Northern War, married one of Nene's relatives and built up his kauri timber business through trade with local chiefs (though at one point awoke to find a plundering party had arrived on his front lawn). He was also friends with Frederick Maning, and visited by George Grey, Richard Seddon and other luminaries of the day. In telling the story of John Webster's long and colourful life for the first time, this biography also explores the wider transformation of relationships between Maori and Pakeha during the nineteenth century.
It is an intimate and revealing account of life in early New Zealand.

Athfield Architects
Athfield Architects
Over many years, Ian Athfield and his team at Athfield Architects have reshaped New Zealand architecture: from the Buck House at Te Mata Estate, Hawke's Bay, to Wellington's Civic Square, from Jade Stadium to Athfield's own sprawling settlement on the Khandallah hills. Reflecting on half a century of work, Julia Gatley's landmark new book, Athfield Architects, introduces a major body of architecture that will lead readers through modernism, postmodernism and beyond. Its four-part structure traces Ian houses; its important break into commercial work; and finally, its impact in the public, urban and institutional realms. Athfield Architects combines newly commissioned photography, evocative original architectural drawings and a rich text informed by extensive archival research and interviews with key figures in the firm. Taking us from the slums of Manila to the streets of post-quake Christchurch, this major book shows how Aotearoa/New Zealand's leading contemporary architect is transforming the way we all might live.

Auckland Museum Directors Choice
Auckland Museum Directors Choice
Auckland Museum houses the world's leading collection of Maori taonga (treasures) and, reflecting Auckland's place as the world's largest Polynesian city, multiple traditional and contemporary arts from throughout the Pacific region. The Museum's natural history and documentary heritage holdings are among the most extensive in the southern hemisphere - New photography showcases the key items in the collection in exquisite detail - Part of the successful Director's Choice series Auckland Museum, founded in 1852, just 12 years after New Zealand became a British colony, was the nation's first public museum. From the outset the Museum was encyclopedic in its collecting of 'specimens illustrative of the Natural History of New Zealand - also, Weapons, Clothing, Implements of New Zealand, and the Islands of the Pacific'. Starting in a farm cottage, the Museum is now one of the most important in Oceania. Dominating the central Auckland landscape, its monumental Greek Revival building is one of the visual icons of the city. The building is also a memorial to the war dead of the Auckland province, hence the Museum's full title, Auckland War Memorial Museum. Auckland Museum houses the world's leading collection of Maori taonga (treasures) and, reflecting Auckland's place as the world's largest Polynesian city, multiple traditional and contemporary arts from throughout the Pacific region. The Museum's director, David Gaimster, explores this extraordinary collection, each item with its own compelling backstory.

Awatere
Awatere
The Awatere is the Marlborough river and valley south of Blenheim. It runs from Molesworth Station in the high country all the way to the sea below the township of Seddon, overlooked by Mt Tapuae-o-Uenuku, the highest peak in the Inland Kaikoura Range. Author Harry Broad's interest in this area was piqued when he was working on his acclaimed and best-selling book Molesworth, and he has followed through with this to produce Awatere. This is a fascinating and extensive collection of stories that document the multi-facetted, changing face of rural New Zealand, and which explores both the people and the landscape of this area. The upper Awatere valley has many well-known, classic high-country stations, such as The Muller, which borders Molesworth. In the lower valley, there are still many conventional pastoral farms, but the huge change has come through the wine industry. Many people do not realise that the Awatere valley is now the second-largest wine sub-region in New Zealand, with three times the production of an area like Central Otago. This mix of farming and wine has given this area its own unique flavour and character, captured both in Harry Broad's stories, but also through the stunning images from photographers Jim Tannock, Rob Suisted and Dave Hansford, as well as a range of others. Awatere will be a beautiful and engaging book, a must-read for anyone interested in Marlborough, or rural New Zealand.
