    “The Christchurch Style” is a limited edition hand-produced zine that pulls together a small snapshot of prominent brutalist public structures built in Ōtautahi Christchurch between 1964 and 1984. Taking a glimpse of the careers of notable architects of the iconic ‘Christchurch style’ including Sir Miles Warren, Keith Mackenzie and Humphrey Hall; this book takes a romantic look at the straight lines and textured concrete of the city.

    Akzidenz-Grotesk was used to mirror the brutalism that the book was designed to portray.

    Published an edition of 100 copies by Crystal Palace Books 2020.
    64 pages, 150×200 mm, hand-stitched and bound.
