The New Zealand Registered Architects Board:
The task of architecture is to lead the way in terms of what the built environment can and should be. This goes beyond designing for function, essential though that is. In so far as architecture articulates the national imagination, it contributes to nation building. If the built environment in New Zealand is the best that it can be, then it contributes to the realisation of this nation’s potential.
The NZRAB determines who can be a Registered Architect. In doing this, the NZRAB is mindful of the broader contribution that the profession makes to New Zealand.
