Is it a case in point that countries with nice scenery have shite architecture. Or is it that narrow island counties have an aversion to buit environments, what with being naturally bounded by the sea, with some mountainy bits in the middle to give people their height 'fix'

I think you're being a bit harsh. The USA is full of crap like that, and full of outstanding architecture as well.

the south island has a sense of being wild, with frontier towns and a sort of primitive nature to the buildings. queenstown would be an example.
makarora up in the mountains has some fantastic a frame huts, kinda like a house by duncan stuart down in ballyferriter. i'll dig out some photos if i can.
