Petition of Simon Holdsworth: All new construction to be built in an Art Deco or Art Nouveau style

Published date: 5 May 2020

Petition request

That the House of Representatives conduct an inquiry into the merits of mandating a uniform architectural style, either art deco or art nouveau, on new construction in New Zealand.

Petition reason

I believe modernism was a terrible mistake. In my view architectural design peaked in 1910. Bring beauty, elegance and clean lines back to New Zealand’s cities.
