Bill McKay discusses the history of the classic layout of a kitchen, and its connections to pre-Nazi Germany. And the famous 'kitchen triangle' which many people still insist is fundamental to a good kitchen layout.

Bill McKay is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Architecture and Planning at the University of Auckland.
