    I love how open it is. ideal for the hot sumers. The architecture and design elements are amazing, it defiantly has that marae feel of communal interaction. I can visualise women weaving kids laughing. and men having whaikorero Very modern and innovative nice work Jun kit Chang

    Stunning architect with Open Space to learn in. It would be nice to see if Tukutuku panels have a place inside and some flax bush around the grounds. Acknowledgements to all who work on or around this Marae Project …ka pai

    Wow simple, contemporary and would be amazed if this is how it was shaped. I agreed it should include acknowledgments to tangata whenua here as well.
