Abstract
Fred Tschopp represents the moment that contemporary landscape architecture came to New Zealand. Government and Local Authorities In Wellington, Rotorua and Auckland employed him to create new forms of public utilities - planning controls on business and residential open space and land use - street lighting, boulevards of greensward and trees; stream revegetation; Indigenous plants; transport - concrete roads and footpaths, below street sewerage systems; tourism and recreational open space using Indigenous plants. These landscape architecture projects occur under the influence of the New Zealand Town Planning Act 1926 and initial unsuccessful attempts to legislate new controversial management strategies such as house lot design etc.
