A New Zealand Architect’s unique OE

Like many young New Zealanders, aspiring architect Pete Bossley jumped on a plane and headed off for a year or two of travel.

But this wasn’t any ordinary OE! Travelling solo, he embarked on a architectural Grand Tour of the US, Europe and Japan, filling 10 sketchbooks with designs, plans and drawings.

And in an analog, pre-internet age of film cameras, letters, rubbers and pencils these sketches offer a nostalgia-tinged glance at a bygone era, and insight into Bossley’s work as an architect today.
