- Project Title
- Tumahu Ipukarea: decolonising Te Awarua-o-Porirua
- The 'Imagining Decolonised Cities' competition was launched, encouraging people to imagine how two sites in Porirua could look if they were designed with Māori values rather than a colonial one.
Toitu te marae a Tane Toitu te marae a Tangaroa Toitu te iwi This project looks into the idea of a decolonised city with respect to Porirua. This competition project looks to reverting to the past. Through understanding the cultural paradigm shift of manawhenua and Maori, our scheme harnesses the natural environment to allow for a promotion of cultural resilience within Te Awarua-o-Porirua through the traditions of hikoi and navigation of waterways.
