If you’re a young architect you’re sure to know all about Erika Nakagawa’s airy Momoyama House and deviously clever Skinny Tower. This volume brings all her beautifully constructed models to life, plus, there’s conversations with Chilean architect Smiljan Radić and Japanese architect Taira Nishizawa, all rounded out with drawings of the neighbourhoods and architectural plans. If we could squeeze into her model cardboard homes, we would move in today! 



This forward-looking volume gives voice to tangata whenua riffing on their dual heritage and their hopes for the future. Springing from the exhibition Tuia: 250 years since the first onshore meetings between Māori and Pākehā, the glossy photographs and focus on a shared future is the antidote to any news headline right now.
