This chapter, authored by Jade Kake, discusses the use of design principles to support Māori and non-Māori practitioners to consider the diverse needs of Māori in planning for papakāinga development. It provides an overview of general masterplanning principles and guidelines for the design of individual dwellings. The chapter also discusses the use of community-based visioning and design processes when working with Māori communities.

Our Voices: Indigeneity and Architecture is an exciting advance in the field of architecture offering multiple indigenous perspectives on architecture and design theory and practice. Indigenous authors from Aotearoa NZ, Canada, Australia, and the USA explore the making and keeping of places and spaces which are informed by indigenous values and identities. The lack of publications to date offering an indigenous lens on the field of architecture belies the rich expertise found in indigenous communities in all four countries. This expertise is made richer by the fact that this indigenous expertise combines both architecture and design professional practice, that for the most part is informed by Western thought and practice, with a frame of reference that roots this architecture in the indigenous places in which it sits.

Our Voices: Indigeneity and Architecture will be published by ORO Editions in May 2018.
