New Zealand Design Review was the journal of the Architectural Centre, Inc., Wellington. The New Zealand Electronic Text Centre have digitised issues from 1948-53 on-line. It’s a nice snapshot of some classic Kiwi design, both architectural and graphic (look at those covers!).
The Wellington Architectural Centre began the two-monthly publication of Design Review in 1948. The Wellington Architectural Centre was founded in 1946, and began the first architectural school in Wellington (1947) and the first town planning school in New Zealand (1949). The Centre was unique at the time of its founding in that it invited members interested in a broad range of design and the arts, rather than restricting membership to professional architects and architectural students. Internationally it is one of the oldest organisations of its type.
