Event details

Celebrate the journey and future of our architectural identity, and the whare whakairo (carved meeting house) that is seen as synonymous with Māori architecture.

Join Robin Walters, Dr. Deidre Brown and other guests for korero about the innovative and traditional design features of our two wharenui taonga in the city centre: Tānenuiarangi at Waipapa Marae and Te Pūrengi at Ngā Wai o Horotiu Marae.

Arrive before 2pm at Ngā Wai o Horotiu Marae inside the Wharenui (Te Pūrengi) to be seated for a mihi whakatau.
