Add your own review!

Overview

This handsome book is a rich and loving tribute to the work and cultural significance of one of New Zealand's most influential but least well-documented architects, John Scott (1924 1992). Over 40 projects, from Scott's famous Futuna Chapel and the Werry House to the Aniwaniwa Visitor Centre and the Martin House, are beautifully photographed by David Straight. With essays by Douglas Lloyd Jenkins, Hana Scott, Bill McKay and Julia Gatley, and Gregory O'Brien.

Reviews

'It's hard to believe now that Scott's masterpiece, the Futuna Chapel in Wellington, was nearly lost, but there are many other buildings equally deserving of preservation recorded here. The emphasis is on the images but there are also excellent essays by Gregory O'Brien, Douglas Lloyd Jenkins and others. Outside a relatively small circle of architectural enthusiasts, the name of John Scott is not nearly as well-known as it should be. David Straight's book should help change that and possibly inspire interest in other overlooked architects of the mid-20th century.' - Paul Little, North & South
