Whare Kura o Hoani Waititi, West Auckland. 

 

In 1993, I negotiated a contract with the Ministry of Education to have my Maori University students develop design proposals for New Zealand's first purpose-designed Whare Kura at Hoani Waititi Marae in West Auckland. The process was conducted according to kaupapa Maori principles and traditions (tikanga) and students (under guidance) took full responsibility for the development of the proposal. The Whare Kura was an addition to an existing campus containing a marae, a Kohanga Reo and a Kura Kaupapa Primary School.

With some modification, the Kura was built as designed, and embodied principles of Kaupapa Maori that were to become benchmarks in the Ministry of Education programmes of the future.
