This small book belies its importance. There has never been anything like it published before – celebrating women in New Zealand architecture. It doubles as the catalogue for a series of events throughout the country. We believe it is a must for anyone interested in architecture and women’s place in it.
Women architects and designers have made a huge contribution to architecture and the built environment in New Zealand for many years. Many of these women are still not household names but they are nevertheless admired and respected in the profession.
This book presents close to 500 women, all involved in New Zealand architecture in some way, shape or form, from lead designer, company director and project manager through to graduate, student and team member. It shows that women have been leaders in every aspect of architectural design and production in this country, and that women architecture graduates are widely dispersed, both geographically and in their creative modes and outlets. The book was initiated through a newly formed society, Architecture + Women • New Zealand, and coincides with substantial exhibitions in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Queenstown. It will appeal to anyone with an interest in contemporary New Zealand architecture and design.
It includes two introductory texts, the first by the four A+W NZ co-founders (Megan Rule, Lynda Simmons, Sarah Treadwell and Julie Wilson) and the second by Julia Gatley. This is followed by images illustrating the work of almost 400 women involved with architecture in New Zealand, and mention of the names of many more, such as those involved with the A+WNZ incorporated society and the exhibitions in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Queenstown.

World Cup games boost for South
By Steve Hepburn
The South will host five cup games in 2011, with three of the games to be played in Dunedin and two in Invercargill.
Tourism Dunedin chief executive Hamish Saxton said having five pool games south of the Waitaki was a “wonderful opportunity” for the region to promote all it had to offer.

In the same column Mr Snedden says “the tournament is not all just about the playing of rugby”. No, this is the “deadline” tournament by which Dunedin pushes the boat out too far with public funding and ‘official debt’, for the Otago stadium project. A more striking marker of the incorrigible would be hard to imagine.
Mayor Chin rounds out with “Now that we know the matches we are going to get . . . it is all looking very positive now.” For whom? Please see beyond the end of your own nose, Sir.
The matches are confirmed

“Well, isn’t that just brilliant news ? And we get them [the pool games] without having to have built a new stadium. Straight from the Rugby Union mouth. Thanks, Martin Snedden, you just got Dunedin out of a mountain of trouble.” Full comment
Wry, frightening thought:
