John Scott Works is a personal visual response to the work of acclaimed New Zealand architect John Scott. Photographer David Straight explores the essence of Scott’s work – from intimate images of architectural details and moments, to ideas rooted in te ao Māori which are found in Scott's work. It is a celebration of one of New Zealand’s most important architects and a timely acknowledgment not only of his buildings but also his place within our wider cultural context.

The exhibition John Scott Works coincides with the launch of a large-scale publication of the same title published by Massey University Press which will be released in March. The book and the exhibition at Objectspace are designed by Catherine Griffiths.
