Prepare to be a‘mazed’ by Pallet Maze

Visitors to Britomart’s Queen Elizabeth Square will be a’mazed’ by the giant pallet maze set up there from 10 April as part of Auckland City’s Living Room series.

The installation, called Pallet Maze, is built from 1503 wooden pallets which have been stacked to form a house-like structure with two-metre high corridors and a number of internal rooms. The series of rooms attempt to recreate the intimacy of domestic interiors.

Pallet Maze coordinator, Fleur Palmer, encourages people to come down to Queen Elizabeth Square and walk through this palletscape to experience its wooden aesthetic and filtered views.

“Children and adults alike are fascinated by mazes. This installation is a chance for people to enjoy something different in the CBD,” says Ms Palmer.

Pallet Maze is part of Living Room, a series of installations and activities funded by the CBD targeted rate that seeks to enliven the CBD’s public spaces.

Other happenings taking place in the CBD as part of the Living Room series include Proverbial Auckland, Morning Tea, Axminster, Multicultimedia, Durham Lights, Skeletons in the Closet and Musical Bus Stops.

The Living Room series is funded from the CBD targeted rate and is part of the Auckland’s CBD Into the future strategy, which aims to transform Auckland’s CBD into one of the world’s most vibrant and dynamic business and cultural centres.
