    Proposed artwork will:


    – respond to the site including the architecture of each building and existing signage, colours, texture, etc.


    – consider local Māori whakapapa and history


    – reflect the activity within to give Toi Pōneke a clear creative identity and act as an interface between residents at Toi Pōneke and the public
