"Now the council says despite extensive efforts to work with the building owners, there has been no progress, and it has now lost confidence they will do the necessary work.

“Allan Matson: fighting facadism” Sunday Morning RNZ National Podcast

Allan Matson is the Chair of the Auckland Civic Trust and sits on the HPA Executive.

Allan Matson: fighting facadism Sunday Morning RNZ National

"Facadism in Auckland is getting under the collar of heritage expert Allan Matson. It's an architectural practice that took off in the 1980s - gutting old buildings and retaining their facade. The art deco Jean Batten building in Shortland Street is one example. Matson is president of the Civic Trust which seeks to preserve heritage buildings and was an elected member of the NZ Historic Places Trust Board (now Heritage NZ) from 2009-2014 and a long-time critic of facadism."
