Judge's comments: Te Whare Nui o Tuteata is a stunning piece of Aotearoa architecture, not only for its dense storytelling and design excellence but more importantly, what it stands for and the engagement process it undertook with science and mana whenua. An exciting blend of our modern world and tikanga principles. From its carbon-stored timber bone structure, to its Matariki lighting features, it demonstrates by example how the buildings of tomorrow, need to be considered and shaped.
