Since the November earthquake, most of the news about Wellington buildings has been about damaged ones coming down. But developer and engineer Maurice Clark is determined to save the capital's historic buildings. Maurice lovingly restored the quake-damaged deco-style Old Public Trust Building - though at a cost of 10-million dollars. At the moment he's behind a massive renovation of the old Dominion Post buildings on Boulcott Street. Lynn Freeman talks to Maurice White what significant values heritage buildings offer to the city.
