What do you do when you can't design buildings?

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Best known for his controversial 1973 Park Mews complex in Wellington, Roger Walker has returned to painting to get his architecture fix during lockdown.

With a hint of the playful, whimsical art of Disney's Mary Blair, Walker's paintings hark back to his award-winning building block design style. I love Rog's work.
