Tokelau - Then Now / Now Then
Date: 20 February – 13 April 2014
Time: 8.00 amThis exhibition is part of a Masters of Architecture preliminary thesis research at Victoria University of Wellington. The project explores how the essence of a Tokelauan village might be recreated in the design of a community facility in suburban New Zealand.
Using participatory design practices as a method, the project involves working with the Tokelauan community to design a 'village' collaboratively. The Tokelauan community centre in Naenae will provide the testing grounds for the thesis work.
