NZIA City Talks: Te Aro Pā Greta Point: Returning iwi homes, a new hope

  • City Gallery Wellington, Te Ngākau Civic Square Wellington (map)

Te Aro Pā descendants have finally built homes on their ancestral land 140 years after the original settlement was lost. The process to find a new site required a lengthy land swap negotiation with Wellington City Council, then followed a complicated funding process which provides for Māori owned land trusts to use Kāinga Whenua loans to build on ancestral land.
Architect Roger Walker will be joined by the client representative, Earl Hope-Pearson to talk about the genesis and delivery of affordable papakāinga housing at Greta Point, which was awarded a NZIA Wellington Architecture award in 2018.

City Talks is an ongoing series presented by City Gallery Wellington in partnership with the New Zealand Institute of Architects Wellington Branch.
