NZIA City Talks: I Bought a Building: Did I Mean to Do That?

20 November 2017

Malcolm Walker took the local council to the Environment Court to save a significant building in Hokitika, his home town, and ended up buying half the block—a completely uneconomic deal.

City Talks is an ongoing series initiated by the New Zealand Institute of Architects Wellington Branch and presented in partnership with City Gallery Wellington. Its purpose is to foster discussion about architecture for a broader audience in a city that cares to openly discuss ideas relevant to our future.
