2021 Auckland Architecture Awards Winner
Tāmaki Makaurau’s mercantile history is brought into the 21st century in Commercial Bay. Sited along axes of trade, this commercial building channels Aotearoa’s role in local and global markets in form, programme and ambition. Boldly sculptural, the building faces the future, while still honouring the city’s past. Quiet corners face historic buildings, and internal corridors remember the site’s history, but there is no doubt this is a marketplace of the 21st century. Invigorated by the business of markets and trade, Commercial Bay proposes an architecture that faces out to the world by knowing its own place.
