Welcome to BlackWhite magazine

I can't help but be filled with hope when I look at these inspiring stories of New Zealanders and Australians leading us in a more positive direction.

If there's one thing that struck me while pulling together this issue of BlackWhite, it was the tenacity of our Resene specifiers. Many of those I spoke with said they are busier now than they've ever been in their careers; and despite mounting pressures and challenges, they have continued turning out spectacular work.

Our current circumstances have raised some important questions about the ways in which we design, build and maintain – especially when it comes to certain project typologies. They've also spurred some unique colour and design trends to emerge which are unlikely to have come about otherwise. While changes will always happen more quickly when we're forced to adapt, the level of critical thinking triggered by recent events serves as an important reminder that we should keep asking ourselves why we fall into the same patterns. Does it make sense for the project you're working on right now to follow the status quo, or does it hold an opportunity to explore a better way of doing things?

In the pages that follow, we look back at the winding roads that led to the success of some iconic professionals and projects and ahead to choices we can make today to better the places where we live, work and play. There is no way to know what the future holds, and though I think we've got our work cut out for us in one sense or another, I can't help but be filled with hope when I look at these inspiring stories of New Zealanders and Australians leading us in a more positive direction

Happy reading!
