    As part of Auckland Architecture Week 09, a one-day invited design charette was held in a public venue in the Britomart Quarter. The charette was intended to show people what architects do, and to generate concepts for the Auckland City Council's intended redevelopment of the Wynyard Quarter. Teams were briefed at 8:30am, with the final presentation at 5:30pm. The brief called for open public space, retail, community facilities, offices, apartments, and a 'Big Idea' to activate the site. We proposed a non-destructive evolution of the existing fabric, beginning with some 'quick-and-dirty' temporary interventions to begin building community on the site. A layered canopy would be progressively built over the site for monolithic programmatic elements, with ground-level development maintaining a smaller urban grain to keep the existing working character of the site.

  • Dynamic geometries. Te Wero bridge as a pacific monument

    Te Wero bridge re-interprets traditional notions of monumentality by projecting itself as a dynamic point of exchange. The bridge is a new kind of icon for Auckland. Positioned to articulate a subtle adjustment on the Quay St / Jellicoe St axis, it plays its part in a series of urban callings. It offers the challenge of arrival and departure, and sets up a continual dialogue between the city and Wynyard Quarter. Gently wavering masts respond to environmental shifts. On opening, the structure becomes taut, and the roadway rises to scribe an anthropomorphic arc. On closing, the bridge lowers itself back into place, gesturing a precise offering, and providing the necessary tolerance. The event is a study of poise and elegance. The bridge is structurally efficient, with its tensegrity tower, geometrically folded decks, and a gravity and spring-assisted cable and winch system. Te Wero bridge acts as a symbol of the First City of the Pacific not only by its physical presence, but through its articulation of what it means to be Pacific.
