Queens Wharf Competion

In preparation for the 2011 Rugby World Cup, a number of architectural design firms submitted proposals for the upgrade of Queens Wharf. Salmond Reed Architects sought to focus on a transformative design that engaged people, existing structures and the immediate maritime and historic contexts.

As a vibrant live setting for the festivities of the Rugby World Cup and for Aucklanders in the future, the proposal sought a constructed public pedestrian landscape that allowed visitors direct access to the waterfront while enhancing

Auckland’s reputation as a centre for high quality design and entertainment. SRA wanted to positively engage all new work with the existing sheds while providing an existing context for the constructive re-use of elements identified as having heritage significance. The design re-instated the Queen Street axis to connect the water and the city again in a meaningful way.
