The Southern Alps/Ka Tiritiri o te Moana are New Zealand's largest structural feature. Running north and south for most of the length of the South Island, they cross the Roaring Forties and divide the island into two distinct regions, east and west, each with its own unique climate, landscape and lifeforms. In this book, geologist Glen Coates joins with the artist and author Geoffrey Cox to tell how the Alps were formed from ancient marine sediments, how they were uplifted to become mountains, and how they are being eroded down to produce the spectacular landscape seen today in the South Island. Even in just the past few million years vast blocks of land have been shunted incredible distances, and today frequent earthquakes remind us that this is a restless part of the earth where mountain-building is still in full swing. Rivers and glaciers, past and present, carve out a multitude of valleys and ranges, and wide plains have spread out at the mountains' feet. All this is told in vivid, non-technical language and copiously illustrated with colour photographs and artwork. The result is a book suitable for use in schools and by all who take an interest in their landscape and heritage. Paperback

The possibilities to build a home can be limited due to both restrictions on the surface available, as well as on normative and economic restrictions. The diversity in the topology of the projects presented reflects the possibilities that can be developed in order to achieve this objective. And although they can vary regarding the climate and topography of their location, they all share a common theme: the design of homes with a tight budget. Whether these are completely or partially prefabricated houses, extensions, houses made of containers or even a studio or a foster house for children.
