Auckland Waterfront Competition

Just found some work we did in a joint submission with some landscapers for the Queen’s Wharf architectural competition in 2009. Our scheme disappeared without a trace of course (the first clue that something was going badly wrong!) and as it turned out the entire competition was a shambles – millions were spent by hundreds of Architects and other designers researching & preparing submissions, and not even the winning scheme went ahead.

The concept involved some undulating green walled (as in covered with live vegetation) pavilions forming a variety of spaces for people involved in the activity, or just watching the world go by. A “fishing net” installation at the end reaches out into the sea, perhaps to rescue hapless revellers overcome with world cup spirits…
