Intelligent, outspoken, amusing, opinionated and passionate, architect Ian Athfield, considered by many to be a maverick, is one of New Zealand's most influential creative figures who brings a unique vision in his practice of almost 40 years.

His buildings and his personality have helped shape our cities and the world we live in. He has a unique highly personal process - he works closely with clients in an interactive way, creating sites that speak to the landscape and to cultural and social needs. His work reflects a distinctly New Zealand identity.

The film explores his life and work, from the '60s, when he shook up the establishment with bold, radical buildings, through to the present, where his ideas of sustainability and an architecture that builds community are now being embraced.

Athfield eschews iconic buildings in favour of an organic approach which respects the sun, the site and existing structures.

This film profiles the energy, spirit and intelligence of one of New Zealand's most influential creative forces.


New Zealand 2008 / 52min.
Director Geoffrey Cawthorn. Producer Richard Riddiford.
