New building designs on show for Crown Lynn clay museum

08 November 2016

Te Toi Uku – Crown Lynn clay museum in association with the School of Architecture and Planning at the University of Auckland have been working on a project imagining what the museum could look like in the future.

Over 100 stage 2 architecture students assisted by Professional Teaching Fellow Matt Liggins, have worked on the project with a dozen of the best designs being put on display for one day only.

“It was a pleasure working with these students and hearing their ideas” Te Toi Uku director/ curator Finn McCahon-Jones says. “These architectural designs have given me food for thought”

The museum houses more than 5000 pieces of Crown Lynn pottery, and pieces from Auckland’s clay industry.

Finn McCahon-Jones adds “It’s exciting to see how these second year students have envisaged the museum, if only we had an unlimited building budget!”

Sunday 27 November, 10am-1pm.
