A boat above the water: New museum proposed for Auckland waterfront

A building in the shape of a boat. A new museum to celebrate the "legends" of New Zealand history. A unique architectural monument. A magnet for visitors and a place to explore our own history. A brand-new museum proposal for the Auckland waterfront has been revealed today, exclusively to the Weekend Herald. The LegendNZ Centre, which has no official status, has the look of a waka, although its creator, Lindsay Mackie of the architectural firm Archimedia, calls it a "universal vessel". "It could apply to any kind of boat," he says, " including a waka huia, a canoe, a yacht or a ship." But he stresses that while its meaning is " in the eye of the beholder", he wants it to be recognisably unique to New Zealand.

A long low building with basement parking that will block views of the harbour from the park? The render looks really, really awful.

I strangely don't mind it and I don't know why. If the roof was grass parklands and with a few tweaks it could be nice...better than a box with fins!

I like it as well , turn it 90 degs and move it towards the CBD 100 m to open up the Harbour views be fine with me.
