The research programme, “Tu Whare Ora – Building Capacity for Māori Driven Design
in Sustainable Settlement Development” seeks to increase Māori capacity and input
into housing and settlement design in New Zealand. It reflects a growing desire
among many Māori to be more active in planning and shaping living environments for
their people and the overall settlement patterns within either their respective
rohe or the contemporary environments in which they now live. This bibliography
has been taken from the 2008 report, “Tū Whare Ora – Building Capacity for Māori
Driven Design in Sustainable Settlement Development.”
The “Tū Whare Ora” reviews the literature relevant to the Māori built environment.
The review covers the spectrum of Māori housing from pre-European times, through
the state-sponsored Māori housing schemes of the 1950s, up to the current climate
of iwi/hapū advocating for kaupapa Māori based solutions for housing.
