  • Su, Bin (ICSBIE: International Conference on Sustainable Building and Infrastructure Engineering, 2011)
    Auckland has a temperate climate with comfortable warm, dry summers and mild, wet winters. An Auckland school normally does not need air conditioning for cooling during the summer and only need heating during the winter. ...
  • Su, Bin (ICESSE 2011: International Conference on Environmental Systems Science and Engineering, 2011)
    The ‘wind-rain’ house has a courtyard with glazed roof, which allows more direct sunlight to come into indoor spaces during the winter. The glazed roof can be partially opened or closed and automatically controlled to ...
  • Francis, Kerry ("Pleasing homogeneity","dull times", and "animated cocktails": New Zealand Architecture in the 1930s., 2006)

  • Francis, Kerry; Smith, Gregory (2010)
    In Auckland in the 1950s a group of architecture students and young graduates were exploring innovative techniques of small scale construction. While these explorations can be seen in the context of a broader, global ...
  • Francis, Kerry (Presentation (non-conference), 2010)
    In Europe and the United States, landscape architecture came late to the modernist party. New Zealand was no exception. While architects here were exploring variants of modernism from the late 1930s, modernist landscapes ...

  • Austin, Michael (IVth International Conference of the Association of Architecture Schools of Australasia, 2007)
    Certification Boards visiting architecture schools regularly demand more ‘technology’ in the curriculum, and an increased ‘integration’ of design and technology in the teaching programme. The persistence of this over many ...
  • Murphy, Chris (Design, Technology, Refurbishment and Management of Buildings: 37th IAHS World Congress on Housing Science, 2010)
    The issue of weathertightness of the external building envelope in domestic scaled timber frames continues to be an issue in New Zealand, some ten years after the results of a major cladding survey into the durability and ...
  • Wagner, Cesar; Archbold, Richard (ConnectED 2010 - 2nd International Conference on Design Education, 2010)

    The Design studio learning system within most Tertiary Design Schools has a unique critique method, (often called “The Crit”). The Crit event itself is rather a “veiled” process and has been analyzed and written about ...
  • Turner, David (On the border: Architectural science in theory and practice, 2010)
    Processes of intensification lead to some unforeseen consequences. One such unplanned consequence is the rearrangement of existing buildings in new or revised spatial patterns. In pursuit of higher densities, large lot ...
  • Murphy, Chris (On the border: Architectural science in theory and practice, 2010)
    In 2004 the New Zealand Government reviewed the New Zealand Building Act. The review was prompted by increasing concern at the lack of weather tightness evident in buildings constructed since the initial performance based ...
