Megson quoted in article about Group Architects' house

Claude Megson quoted in this NZ Herald article on a Group Architects house in Takapuna (pictured). Says the current owner:
"I remember lecturer Claude Megson [at the University of Auckland’'s school of architecture and a member of the group] talking about things like site orientation to the sun, ventilation, functionality and the flow of a house," he says. "It’s neat that those ideas really matter now and they were so on to it then.
Incidentally, I'm not sure that Claude would have recognised himself as a member of The Group. Anyone have any more information on that?

NB: This house is by Group Architects, not by Claude
