The unique journey that made He Tohu
Come and hear the lead designers and architects talk about the unique journey into and through concept development, design and construction of the award-winning He Tohu exhibition.
He Tohu, showcasing three of our nation’s founding documents, demonstrates what is possible through cross-cultural collaboration in all stages of a design project from concept to delivery.
The exhibition gives voice to both The Crown and Māori in a compelling and considered way, reflective of our Treaty partnership, and reflected in a space rich in aesthetic, story and meaning.
