Rewi Thompson

The AAA would like to pay tribute to Rewi Thompson who died earlier this week. Rewi was lead judge in the Visionary Awards last year, one of many services he performed in a career now tragically cut short.

He will be greatly missed by his whanau, the profession, the public, his academic colleagues and the many students he taught. We will all remember him in our own ways but for those who would like to reflect on his work, we recommend the Block Building Tour Itinerary number 20, Rewi Thompson in Auckland, which can be found at

Kua hinga te totara i te wao nui a Tane. E te rangatira, haere ki te waahi tuturu o ta tatou tupuna, haere atu ra, okioki atu ra, moe mai ra.
