Construction of the new library and museum in Foxton is progressing rapidly, the form of the pop out mezzanine area is now clearly visible.
The team had an exciting and informative site visit to Plant and Food Research in Mt Albert. The refurbishment is coming along nicely, with the top level complete, and levels 3, 4 and 5 underway currently. The curtainwall glazing which is going up means even more space from which to appreciate the fantastic views over the city.
You can now take a virtual tour of the 2016 Venice Biennale on Google Arts and Culture site, it’s almost as good as being there!

Next Thursday evening Pete Bossley and Peter Sisam will present the design of the new Park Hyatt Hotel currently under construction in the Wynyard Quarter. The talk will begin at 6.00 at Jasmax in Parnell. Here’s a little more information about what they will be discussing;
Designed with lead designers ar+d of Singapore, the 195 room project builds up to the perimeters of the 100 x 50m block, 7 storeys high, with a large full-height central atrium. The ground floor comprises a variety of public spaces, with a 5m deep Colonnade circumnavigating the site. Pete will discuss the design process and complexities of working in international design, procurement and construction teams.
And this is the site upon which the hotel will stand…….
