Rewi: Āta haere, kia tere is a tribute to the late architect Rewi Thompson (Ngāti Porou, Ngāti Raukawa), a visionary thinker who believed that great architecture is crafted through a careful consideration of people and place. Written by architect and designer Jade Kake (Ngāpuhi – Ngāti Hau me Te Parawhau, Te Whakatōhea, Te Arawa) and commentator of urban issues Jeremy Hansen, this book is visually and conceptually breathtaking, showing the power of architecture to express te ao Māori and transform.

Deirdre Brown for Architecture Now notes that the book ‘demonstrates that an important contribution to architecture is not necessarily evidenced by a large body of significant buildings recognised through awards and publications’ but ‘a legacy of conceptual shifts in thinking that lead to a change in practice and ... the fostering of a new generation of practitioners in design and education’. Bringing together a stunning range of Thomspon’s projects, from conceptual dreamscapes to one-of-a-kind homes, Rewi includes a comprehensive biography, full-colour imagery (including 65 pages of selected sketches) and interviews with those who worked alongside him.
