Miriam van Wezel has designed a medallion to celebrate New Zealand's participation in the 2014 Venice Architecture Biennale. Based on a beautiful global image featuring in the exhibition itself, the medallion celebrates the theme of the exhibit, based on a quote from a Rudyard Kipling poem, which refers to New Zealand as "last, lonliest, loveliest".

Pete's trip to Sri Lanka

by Administrator 9. May 2014 10:44

Pete and Mir recently spent two weeks in Sri Lanka on a study tour of the work of architect Geoffrey Bawa, who produced many beautiful buildings between 1960 and 2000. Pete is particularly attracted to them as Bawa had a similar set of interests to our practice, especially with concern to designing buildings that acknowledge and highlight the poetry of their sites, and wherever possible offer natural solutions to environmental control. The highlight of the trip was the 1995 Kandalama Hotel in the jungle, a stunning array of long wings that kink along the cliff face, slip between rocks, and offer beautiful views towards a huge reservoir originally constructed in the 14th Century.
