Architecture Uncooked: The New Zealand Holiday House Through an Architect's

N/A

by Pip Cheshire and Patrick Reynolds

This is a fresh and unique response to the little building we all cherish, the Kiwi bach.

Leading architect Pip Cheshire and architectural photographer Patrick Reynolds visited seven holiday houses around New Zealand - from a mountain hut in the Southern Alps to a cluster of new buildings above a Northland bay - to consider the 'uncooked' nature of their construction, articulating why and how each building works, examining the rhythms of occupation during holiday time, and capturing the magic - and lessons, in a country where the landscape is under pressure from development - of each.

'The text - thankfully free of architecture-speak - draws on the writer's lifetime of holiday experiences, beginning with his Canterbury childhood, in an era when getting to your holiday destination involved major expedition. Reynolds' images capture the mundane as well as the magnificent, both outside and within structures, while the page design lends impact to some sublime sequences, such as an icy Arthur's Pass landscape glimpsed through frosty windows.' - Ann Packer

Large hardback, 2008, 254pages, new
