Hundertwasser Design For Wellington

I have a dream - one day this amazing design Hundertwasser gifted to Wellington and all of NZ will be built somewhere on the shores of Wellington Harbour. It appears to me to have two parts representing the partnership of Maori (the spiral koru structure) and Pakeha (The Ramp) meeting in peace, equality and mutual respect over water (the bridge). The bridge also offers a pathway to travel and cultural exchange between both parts.

One of the ways a Hundertwasser building is special is the sourcing of local materials and labour which gives them a well rooted cultural input. Sadly he is no longer with us, but his spirit and ideas are in his conceptual drawings. If this project ever gets off the ground and authentically built it will be a wonderful asset  attracting plenty off visitors - providing local employment and a venue to show Hundertwasser's (and New Zealand) craft and artwork.

If you unable read the newspaper articles please feel free to email me at and I will fix the problem or send you a better image.
