Well into the middle part of his career, Patterson keeps growing, and his buildings keep surprising. Lately in post-earthquake Canterbury, he has worked on the Christchurch Botanic Gardens Visitor Centre (2013) and dwellings (2013-2016) at Annandale on the Banks Peninsula.

The New Zealand Institute of Architects has also recently released a coffee table book celebrating Patterson’s Gold Medal achievement. The book features contributions by a number of respected commentators and architects, including David Mitchell, Rhana Devenport, Jack McKinney, Andrew Barrie, Lynda Simmons and Pip Cheshire, as well as insights into key works and a long interview by John Walsh, who has written numerous books about architecture in New Zealand.
