About the Journal

AHA: Architectural History Aotearoa is a forum for broad-ranging discussion on the built environment and related issues in Aotearoa.  Each issue focuses on a specific decade.  It encourages experimental, raw thinking and investigation, from researchers and scholars (academics, enthusiasts, practitioners, and students) from all career stages and experiences that opens up new understanding of architecture in our country.  It aims to be intellectually expansive in its investigations of each focussed time period and academically generous.

Aha is both an acronym and a word in te reo Māori; maoridictionary.co.nz translates "aha" as a verb meaning: "to do what? treated in what fashion? to do anything" and a noun meaning "what?"
