Peter Beaven – Life-long heritage advocate


Peter has been a passionate advocate of Christchurch heritage for his whole working life. He has manifested this in numerous ways from founding groups such as the Christchurch and Akaroa Civic Trusts in the 1960s, tirelessly battling against poor quality, unsympathetic development proposals, whilst demonstrating through his own work how architecture can build on and enhance the city’s heritage. It is a huge tragedy to have Peter Beaven pass away this year just when his heritage advocacy and deep knowledge is needed more than ever.
