This book, published on the occasion of the Schoolís centenary, surveys its history, from academic achievement and pedagogical change through to student pranks, strikes and even the occasional revolt. It is a history full of life, energy and strong personalities. The book will appeal to those interested in the history, development and design of New Zealandís towns, cities and buildings, particularly architects, planners, urban designers and heritage conservationists as well as students in all four of these disciplines. Many of the iconic structures and designs that shape New Zealandís landscape are the products of the Schoolís graduates, and a number of current students are the sons and daughters, nieces and nephews or grandchildren of staff and alumni. As New Zealandís first institution teaching both architecture and planning, the School occupies a significant position in the history of both disciplines. Evening lectures in a cold basement in 1917 mark the meagre beginnings of the University of Aucklandís School of Architecture and Planning, now a highly rated and internationally competitive school. The Auckland School holds a special place in New Zealandís architectural and planning history, because it combines the countryís oldest school of architecture and its oldest department of planning. Other New Zealand universities did not establish professionally recognised schools and programmes in these disciplines until the 1970s. The history of the Auckland School therefore underscores the development of both disciplines in this country. This beautifully produced and designed book is a finalist in DINZ Best Awards 2017.
