Louis Hay set up his architectural practice in the beautiful seaside town of Napier. There he stamped his mark with a range of buildings, embracing current international architectural innovations, particularly assimilating the modernist style of American Frank Lloyd Wright.

After the devastating Hawke’s Bay 1931 earthquake Louis Hay became a member of the newly formed Associated Architects and Napier Reconstruction Committees. Their challenge: to rebuild the town in a sympathetic, modern style using the new New Zealand building code.

The Architectural Legacy of A.J. Louis Hay showcases Louis Hay’s domestic, public and business architectural plans. He is undoubtedly one of the city’s most important architects, in the words of Frank Lloyd Wright, ‘an original interpreter of his time, his day, his age’.

In the Linkway Gallery, MTG.
