The Civic in Auckland, Christchurch's town hall, the railway in Dunedin - our country has some pretty iconic buildings.
Their creation is so often relegated to the history books, but now its being brought to TV screens with a new season of Making New Zealand.
The series highlights moments in our past that help build the country we have today.
Kathleen Mantel directed 3 of the episodes, including the first which is all about cool old buildings.
It starts this Sundays at 8.30pm on Prime.
