This paper is a transcript of a presentation given to the Built Form and Culture Conference at Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona in Novewmber 1989. It describes a design project ubndertaken by undergraduate architecture students in the small New Zealand town of Whakatane. In the process of designing a new town centre plan, the students uncovered layers of historical racism built into the environment of the town. Institutionalised policies of exclusion, the destruction of sacred Maori sites and an ethos of cultural antipathy characterised the relationship between the town council and the tribe. This PDF tells the story of how the students revealed and then overcame these historical relationships to create a design that had a broad consensus and that embodied new principles of inclusivity and social justice.
