East and West
Our expertise and our way of working collaboratively is increasingly in demand overseas, and such opportunities are part of a great upswing for New Zealand’s creative industries. Currently we are working on several large-scale waterfront projects in China, and we find that the travel there is relatively easy with direct flights, and that our Chinese associates are very hospitable and extremely diligent. These projects are a small part of China’s amazing development from an agrarian to a post-industrial nation in one generation. They are also part of building a strong public realm, with new gathering and recreational spaces that develop local character and enhance the areas ecology. We feel that we are making a worthwhile contribution and are taking huge learnings from a large scale and fast paced environment.
