Auckland - West

Mainly West of Queen Street - seen through my lens




The marae at Unitec Institute of Technology blends traditional and modern styles. The gargoyles along the spouting are a contemporary expression. Master carver for the meeting house (Te Noho Kotahitanga, built 2003–2009): Dr Lyonel Grant.
