Auckland Project Shortlisted for World Architecture Festival


Major Auckland Design Project Shortlisted for World Architecture Festival

A Jasmax, Monk Mackenzie and Stantec collaboration, Te Whau Pathway, has been shortlisted for the World Architecture Festival in the Infrastructure – Future Project category. A major new landscape architecture project for West Auckland, Te Whau Pathway is a 12km shared cycling and walking route on the western edge of the Whau River.

The pathway will link the Manukau and Waitematā Harbours and is set to revolutionise the way Aucklanders get around this part of the city by foot or by bike. Travelling from Te Atatu to Green Bay, the pathway will connect people with parks, schools and places of work as well as other major cycleways on Auckland’s fast expanding cycleway network and allow greater access to the beautiful Whau River.

“Judges would have been impressed with the sinuous flowing alignment of the boardwalk snaking through the mangroves,” says Jasmax Landscape Architect and Principal, Mike Thomas.

The World Architecture Festival is the only global architectural awards programme. The purpose is to inspire, celebrate and share outstanding architecture worldwide. There are 536 projects from 81 countries shortlisted across 39 categories in the World Architecture Festival for 2018. Winners will be announced in November in Amsterdam and will go on to compete for the World Building of the Year award or the Future Project of the Year award.

Te Whau Pathway Scheme Assessment was delivered by leading New Zealand designers Jasmax and Monk Mackenzie in consortium, with Stantec. It is a collaborative partnership between Auckland Council, The Whau and Henderson Local board, Auckland Transport, Te Kawerau a Maki, Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei and the Whau Coastal Walkway Environmental Trust.
