“A Museum of New Zealand Architecture” explores the possibility of creating a museum that exhibits various examples of New Zealand architecture. New Zealand architecture needs more exposure in the public domain for its significance to be appreciated. Historical architecture in New Zealand is being lost as more and more buildings are being demolished regardless of their importance. Architecture is forever changing and developing new methodologies and is becoming more environmentally aware. It can represent a comparison between past and present examples of the art and some of the countries most interesting buildings demonstrate many different generations of architectural style which affects and enhances the sensual experiences and thus the primary living conditions of the inhabitants. By exploring existing New Zealand architecture, its history and development, an attempt is made to incorporate some of these findings in this project. Sufficient space needs to be created in the form of galleries with suitable viewing ramps and platforms in order that larger exhibits maybe viewed from appropriate angles. Project site: Symonds Street and Khyber Pass intersection.
