Waitangi Day 2018

Waitangi Day Pop Up


A pop-up structure held within Waitangi Day Festival 2018 alongside Porirua's estuary shoreline.   The 5m structure aimed to expand the number of community members exposed to new ways of participation and decision making in the city.  It intended to link the 2016 architectural design thesis outcome with the ongoing processes in council around the transformation of the city centre, with a focus on turning towards the harbour.    It was a stunner of a day and a great festival celebration of a significant day in our country.  It was the first time Porirua City held the festival on the water's edge - about time!
