Built for Us
The Work of Government and Colonial Architects, 1860s-1960s
By (author) Lewis E. Martin
Built for Us by Lewis E. Martin
Book DescriptionRetired architect Lewis Martin has a passion for buildings, eloquently expressed in Built for Us: The Work of Government and Colonial Architects, 1860s to 1960s . As an architect in private practice, he worked on hospitals, fire stations, post offices, libraries, school halls, local authority offices, office blocks, and houses. He was chair of the New Zealand Institute of Architects Education Committee during the 1970s, when an attempt was made to introduce architecture in some form into school syllabi. The committee believed that only a nation where consumers were interested in and knowledgeable about architecture could create a society where buildings were generally admired and pleasing.
