Maritime Museum Masterplan | Auckland | 2009

Voyager commissioned AW to imagine how the National Maritime Museum could develop at Hobson Wharf, Auckland. Six masterplan principles were clarified in two extensive workshops. These set guidelines for a more animated public realm sheltered and closer to the sea, with better pedestrian connections to the Auckland CBD. Initial concept ideas were scoped to allocate a budget for future expansion. Are there better locations for the Maritime Museum on the Auckland Waterfront? 

The meeting of land and water as much as anything makes these environments of interconnection - that Māori call ngā ākau - seem more fervent, more generous, even spiritual.
