"In my 80th year, I've got a big project". There's something quite marvellous about the optimism of architect Sir Miles Warren in this interview with Kathryn Ryan on Radio New Zealand National's Nine to Noon. Sir Miles believes the stone part of his historic home, Ohinetahi, will have to be demolished because of damage from Saturday's earthquake, but he says he has already mentally designed its replacement and is excited about having a project. Maurice Mahoney, Sir Miles' partner in the firm Warren & Mahoney, is also interviewed.
