Architectural historian Bill McKay reveals why Michael King considered our church buildings "New Zealand's one contribution to world architecture” and invites us to consider the future of our church buildings in an era witnessing a decline in the relationship between spiritual and civic life.

Given their fascinating history, he asks how we identify which buildings we want to maintain and care for, and how we share the costs for earthquake strengthening and maintenance as communities are forced to reconsider how we value our built environment.

Bill McKay has written and talked extensively on New Zealand architecture and urban design issues and social housing in books, journals, and magazines such as Architecture New Zealand. His commentary and criticism over the last decade were recognised by the New Zealand Institute of Architects with a President's Award and Urbis magazine named him Best Architectural Writer.

City Talks begins a week of activities supporting Architecture Week in Wellington in a conversation about the changing face of our cities. For more information on other happenings during Architecture Week, 19–25 September, please visit the website: www.architectureweek.co.nz.

This event will be followed by refreshments.
