Māori architecture : from fale to wharenui and beyond / Deidre Brown.
Identifier: ISBN 9780143011125 (hbk.)
Māori Architecture charts the genesis and form of indigenous buildings in Aotearoa New Zealand. It explores the vast array of Māori-designed structures and spaces, how they evolved over time and how they tell the story of an ever-changing people. Throughout this story, the book looks at facets of early Polynesian settlement, the influence of Christian and western technology, the buildings of religio-political movements such as Ringatū, Parihaka and Rātana, post-war urban migration, and contemporary architecture.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 174-179) and index.
