Rewi: Ata Haere, Kia Tere

Jade Kake

Rewi: Ata haere, kia tere is a tribute to the late architect Rewi Thompson (Ngati Porou, Ngati Raukawa), a visionary thinker who believed that great architecture is crafted through careful consideration of people and place. This book brings together a breathtaking range of his projects, from conceptual dreamscapes to one-of-a-kind homes. It is written by one of the rising stars of architecture and a well-known commentator on urban issues, and includes interviews with those who worked with him.
