2020 Auckland Architecture Awards Winner
The University of Auckland Faculty of Engineering / Te Herenga Mātai Pūkaha B405
This complex building makes a point of celebrating its function. Behind the exuberant and colourful clothing of the façade and fit-out is a thoroughly resolved and simple skeleton of structure and services that is revealed to offer students a transparent and educational exhibit. A very adaptable and flexible plan and section provide the faculty with a highly adaptable facility, and materials, colour and detailing internally and externally show an awareness of how an institutional building can offer delight to its youthful occupants.
