Jeanette Budgett has worked in architectural practice since graduation from the University of Auckland in 1987. Concurrently she taught architectural design and was made a Design Fellow at Auckland University of Auckland in 2000. She is currently a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Architecture, UNITEC Institute of Technology, where she teaches in design studio and construction technology. Her Masters of Architecture (2005) investigated the history and conservation of coral mission-period architecture of the Cook Islands. A book chapter on this topic in Cook Islands Art and Architecture (Rarotonga University of the South Pacific, 2013) is pending. The recently published e-book The Unstable City (Unitec Press, 2013) discusses Auckland’s old shop buildings in the aftermath of the Christchurch earthquakes. Other research interests include contemporary digital fabrication technique and the architectural interior. Her most recent architectural project has just been published in Big House Small House (2012). Link to The Unstable City
