TE HONONGA
The Joining of Cultures

Tena koutou katoa,

Te Hononga o nga whakaaro, hei tuapapa mo te mahi tahi, tutuki noa to tatou kaupapa. A melding of ideas as a firm foundation for combined effort and realisation of our collective vision.

Our Vision - Te Pae Tawhiti

Inspired by our friendship with Friedensreich Hundertwasser, Te Hononga is a community-led project and will fuse environmental build and design with natural materials, Toi Māori art, culture and shared community spaces.

Located in Kawakawa, behind the world-famous Hundertwasser Toilets (opened in 1999), Te Hononga will be a centre for our local community and manuhiri (visitors) alike. A place to celebrate arts, culture and a connection to each other and our environment.

The proposed Park Centre

  • Interpretive centre / memorial to Hundertwasser
  • Public gallery & viewing platform
  • Community workshop
  • Library & Council service centre
  • Atea & town square
  • Improved public amenities & parking
  • Connections to the Hundertwasser Park, native nursery, sculpture, walking and cycle trails

Construction will start September 2018 with an aim to open December 2019, 20 years after the opening of the original Hundertwasser toilets.

WE HOPE THAT YOU CAN JOIN US, PLEASE GIVE GENEROUSLY AND HELP OUR COMMUNITY VISION COME TO LIFE.
