Te Ari Prendergast, a Graduate Architect at Chow:Hill's Auckland studio, recently presented a unique project at the AASA Conference in Christchurch
Te Ari recently presented a unique project at the AASA Conference in Christchurch; work originally developed for the GRAPHISOFT student competition.
In Te Ari's architectural thesis, he looked at the precedent of the Māori Carving School as a way to capture youth disenfranchised after the Christchurch earthquakes, to provide a pathway to tell their stories, and recreate a sense of identity.
The design is inspired by the original swamp landscape and follows the pathway of Welcome in Māori culture. We are very proud of Te Ari's skill and thought processes, and are delighted to share some images of his work with you.
