Māori and indigenous people have been made invisible across a range of areas and in particular, within the built environment.
Despite this, we are in a flux of change where Māori design and cultural expression supports modern architecture and infrastructure here in Aotearoa New Zealand.
Māpuna helps to engaging Mana Whenua organisations to create greater opportnities for Māori artists to bring their expertise and skills into significant building and architectural opportunities within our largest cities and within rural and marae environments.
Through our value of He toi whakairo - artistic excellence, brings human dignity. Through this innovation of design, we here in Aotearoa New Zealand are on the crest of greatness.
Tika tonu - keep going!
