            "Many of us dream of having a life free from rent, mortgages and utility bills. For some, this can be achieved by living in a tiny house, which offers a low-cost, environmentally friendly path to home ownership. The author of Living Big in a Tiny House, has developed a large inte...rnational following for his YouTube series of the same name, and from this experience provides insight into the rapidly growing, global, tiny-house movement. In this book he has collected a diverse range of examples that best illustrate innovative small-space design, along with the intriguing stories of their owners from here in New Zealand, USA, Canada, Australia and Japan"--Back cover.

            What might our cities look like in ten, twenty or fifty years? What kind of lifestyles may evolve and how will we move around, where will we live and work? How may future cities face global challenges? Imagining the city of the future has long been an inspiration for many archite...cts, artists and designers. This book explores how cities of the future have been visualised, what these projects sought to communicate and what the implications may be for us now - a visually accessible resource demonstrating how the methodology of futuring works and why it is valuable for architecture and urbanism. Although many of the visions for future cities were never built and remained imaginary or the backdrop for a fictional narrative, this does not mean they are unworthy of attention. Their importance extends in other ways through their questioning of reality. A multitude of climatic, social, economic and cultural pressures for global cities mean that more than even the way we vision the future has become particularly important. But how to best approach the future? This is a highly illustrated, useful and informative text to support those interested in developing an understanding of the built environment; the dreams, ambitions and desires that shaped it from early examples of the ideal society from the 16th century to contemporary projected cities envisioned for the rest of the 21st century and beyond.

            This 268-page memoir by a retired New Zealand Judge is a collection of 383 jottings of anecdotes, observations, insights, and short case notes providing and absorbing and delightfully written insight into the daily life of a judge in what he describes as ""the largest and busiest... court in the land, a sort of busy Central Railway Station where are all lawbreakers begin their journey, and where most people will have their only courtroom experience."The author, Russell Callander, was a District Court Judge, Chief Justice of Samoa, and a regional Executive Judge. He was also a convenor of the New Zealand Parole Board for 14 years. He received two honours from Queen Elizabeth II: the New Zealand 1990 commemoration medal, and the Queen's Service Order in 2015. During his 35 years on the bench he jotted down anything that amused, annoyed, or interested him. When he retired in 2013 he culled, edited, and organised his large collection. His jottings are a pot pourri of items, some serious, some light-hearted; but all revealing the human fallibilities judges deal with day by day. He has included some delightful cartoons. It is a book that can be read in any order, at any time. Born in 1940, the author is a genuine geriatric!

            Modern bio-technologies give us unprecedented control of the fundamental building blocks of life. For designers, across a range of disciplines, emerging fields such as synthetic biology offer the promise of new sustainable materials and structures which may be grown, are self-ass...embling, are self-healing and adaptable to change. While there is a thriving speculative discourse on the future of design in the age of biotechnology there are few realised design applications. This book, the first in the Bio Design series, acts as a bridge between design speculation and scientific reality, and between contemporary design thinking, in areas such as architecture, product design and fashion design, and the traditional engineering approaches which currently dominate bio technologies. Filled with real examples, Living Construction reveals how living cells construct and transform materials through methods of fabrication and assembly at multiple scales, and how designers can utilise these processes.

            "This is the story of the building of Holy Trinity Cathedral in Parnell, Auckland, New Zealand. The story begins with the purchase of the land by Bishop Selwyn in 1842. Bishop Cowie was thwarted in his efforts to begin building on that land and St Mary's was built opposite and be...came the cathedral of the diocese for nearly 100 years. In 1957 the foundation stone of Holy Trinity was laid owing largely to the generous bequest of Miss Horton. The story of Holy Trinity and the story of St Mary's are intertwined. In 1982 St Mary's was brought across the road to be an integral part of Holy Trinity. In the mid 1990s the nave was completed. Both the nave design and the relocation of St Mary's were the inspired insights of Professor Dick Toy. Controversy has been part of the process. Frank Wright tells the story with the emphasis on the people involved. It is a moving account of a great project which gives the Anglican church in Auckland a centre of unity and belonging, and which provides a witness to the Christian Gospel and its relevance"--Publisher information.
