Long Live the Modern celebrates twentieth-century architectural initiatives concerned with the new – new technologies, new materials, new forms, new building types, new ways of living - initiatives embedded with the belief that the new would change lives in positive ways.

Curated by Julia Gatley and Bill McKay, from the University of Auckland School of Architecture and Planning. Toured by the Gus Fisher Gallery and the University of Auckland.
