This 220 hectare masterplan around Lake Rotorua in New Zealand will create a cultural tourism destination for visitors and tourists local to New Zealand and from across the globe. Created for the Ngati Whakaue Tribal Lands (NWTL), Scott Brownrigg’s concept for the masterplan is ‘episodic’ — a series of forms and events (the idea of ‘shaping’) that are interwoven with the rich narrative of NWTL and their heritage.The team have successfully maintained communication and developed a site specific response that reflects tribal culture despite a difference in time zone, and due to the pandemic, an inability to visit New Zealand.
