St James Church, 1963. Len Hoogerbrug, Hastings, New Zealand.

St James, Mahora Hastings was designed by Len Hoogerbrug in 1958-59 and completed 1963. When first opened, the building received national praise. However, over the years it was largely forgotten from the main accounts of New Zealand architecture. The church's congregation fell away and it decided to close its doors in 2017.

This is the second in a series of books by Giles Reid on under appreciated works of New Zealand modernism
