Biculturalism and Architecture in Aotearoa/New Zealand

Biculturalism and Architecture in Aotearoa/New Zealand Europeans have long questioned the relevance and significance of indigenous architecture for contemporary life in Aotearoa/New Zealand. Maori architecture in turn has been influenced from first contact and continues to be shaped and respond to social change. However, there is very little architecture that can be called 'bicultural', other than the so-called Maori church Rangiatea of 1851 and Futuna Chapel over one hundred years later. The architect of Futuna, John Scott, in the Maori Battalion building pointed in possible directions but these were not taken up by the National Museum of New Zealand (Te Papa Tongareva). http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png National Identities Taylor & Francis

Abstract

Europeans have long questioned the relevance and significance of indigenous architecture for contemporary life in Aotearoa/New Zealand. Maori architecture in turn has been influenced from first contact and continues to be shaped and respond to social change. However, there is very little architecture that can be called 'bicultural', other than the so-called Maori church Rangiatea of 1851 and Futuna Chapel over one hundred years later. The architect of Futuna, John Scott, in the Maori Battalion building pointed in possible directions but these were not taken up by the National Museum of New Zealand (Te Papa Tongareva).
