Summary "Ted McCoy is to Dunedin and Otago architecture as Miles Warren is to Christchurchѫs and Ian Athfield is to Wellingtonѫs. This book celebrates fifty years of Ted McCoy's architecture in the south, closing with the fine renovation of the Otago Museum's entrance and atrium in 1999. The forms of Ted McCoyѫs houses can recall the early stone and mud brick buildings of the colonial era in Otago, as this region has been both his locus and his inspiration. His work ranges from Central Otago holiday houses, through schools and churches to multi-storey university and commercial buildings, shopping malls, and a cathedral. As Douglas Lloyd-Jenkins comments in his introduction, ѵIn trying to pigeon-hole McCoy exclusively as one thing on a list that might include ئ a post-war innovator, one of the master big building modernists of the 1960s and 1970s, a house architect of proven ability, a sophisticated maker of church architecture or a superb interpreter of the post-modern movement ئ is to lose understanding. Ted McCoy is not one, but all of those things.ѫ "--Publisher's website.
