Design Generation: How Peter Haythornthwaite Shaped New Zealand’s Design-led Enterprise

Michael Smythe

This book tells the story of one of New Zealand's most influential industrial designers, Peter Haythornthwaite.

 Spanning five decades, Design Generation documents Haythornthwaite's career through childhood influences, education in Auckland and Illinois, work experience in California and New York, and teaching and consultant practice in New Zealand. It chronicles his many roles as a design leader: an innovator of design, employer in private practices and his notable contribution to the wider field of design.
