Such a question will no doubt be met with cries of “What is this woman on about?” And justifiably so. New Zealand’s current stock of architectural heritage is thinly spread, under-researched, under-resourced, largely uncared for and still struggling under the weight of a nineteenth-century bias. It survives, it could be argued, from recession to recession; a tempered, stagnant, or backward economy countering the illogics of progress, where signals of the past are often substituted for fostering an economic culture.
