Not all public buildings were designed by the government architect. Some of the best were by private architects, such as Cantabrian Paul Pascoe, who designed Christchurch's modernist airport terminal in 1957. With its sleek forms and large picture windows, the building captured the glamour and modernity of the forthcoming jet age. In 1960 the New Zealand Institute of Architects awarded Pascoe its gold medal for the airport's design.
