DRI Dairy Factory

Palmerston North
Awapuni, Manawatu
Historically this is a very important building for New Zealand.

The Old Dairy Factory was a model dairy factory for the manufacture of cheese and butter. It included laboratory facilities for research. Several internationally recognised breakthroughs in dairy technology were pioneered in the building following its completion in 1929.

The Prairie (Chicago) style has clearly had a major influence on the architecture. This is because the architect was Roy Lippincott who came to New Zealand from Australia where he had worked for Walter Burley Griffin who in turn was influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright.
