2018 New Zealand Architecture Awards Winner
The Waterview Connection
The Waterview Connection signals a qualitative advance in the design and execution of New Zealand infrastructure projects. Through a process of community consultation and engagement, the architects have added layers of civic amenity, appropriate monumentality and aesthetic appeal to a large transit scheme that had occasioned local unease. Architectural contributions, such as Te Whitinga – the Hendon footbridge – and the road tunnel portals, transcend mitigation to provide meaningful benefit to those who live in this part of Auckland, and some pleasure to those who rapidly pass through it. The work is well integrated with the impressive landscape scheme designed by Boffa Miskell.
