The Christ’s College campus in Christchurch is unquestionably one of the most remarkable collections of buildings in New Zealand, but there are few publications which focus solely on its architecture. To produce this book, Sir Miles Warren, the architect for Christ’s College for 43 years, enlisted fellow Christchurch architect Alec Bruce to create this succinct summary of the design of the college’s unique buildings. Earlier collaborations on projects at Christ’s College led naturally to this shared authorship. Drawings have been used instead of photographs, to show the range of types of graphical information from which buildings were produced and the different creative tendencies of the architects involved. Later design commissions contend with the challenge of working in an established heritage environment. Significant parts of Christ’s College were changed as a result of the Christchurch earthquakes, lending urgency to the publication of this book, which includes buildings which have been removed since September 2010.

Ohinetahi is the home of Sir Miles Warren, renowned Christchurch architect and passionate gardener. In this delightful description of his house, his garden and the major artworks within the garden, Sir Miles tells the fascinating history of the property, details the many architectural changes made since construction of the house began in the 1850s and describes the development of the stunning garden that is now visited by many hundreds of people every year. Filled with beautiful photographs, and told with his usual wry humour, Sir Miles relates the trials and tribulations of reconstructing an old homestead, and then of later having to repair it following the 2011 earthquakes. His tone of unabashed wonder and delight as he describes the ever-changing garden, makes this succinct history of an exceptional property a sheer delight to read.
