Memorial Park design competition – 28 & 29 July

July 26, 2007 at 6:45 am | Posted in Memorial Park / Buckle St | Leave a comment

Here is a potential opportunity to influence the design options being considered for the Memorial Park – to present appealing design solutions that do not involve “bending” Buckle Street to run along the Mt Cook School boundary (as described in an earlier post and as originally proposed by the Ministry of Culture and Heritage). There is a seminar before the competition begins which can serve as a forum for highlighting local concerns, particularly about air pollution and pedestrian safety.

Seminar and competition

On Saturday 28th of July, a 24 hour Memorial Park design competition begins organised by Victoria University’s School of Architecture. The seminar starts at 9.30am and then the competition begins at 1pm. Register your interest in attending the seminar and/or entering the seminar by contacting rhys.williams@vuw.ac.nz. There is also a $1000 prize for the winning design.
