Judge's comments:

The ‘He Tohu’ exhibition, showcasing three of our nation’s founding documents, demonstrates what is possible through cross-cultural collaboration in all stages of a design project from concept to delivery. He Tohu gives voice to both The Crown and Māori in a compelling and considered way, reflective of our Treaty partnership, and reflected in a space rich in aesthetic, story and meaning.

The judges wish to note the extensive contribution of all those involved, but in particular that of the late Dr Cliff Whiting ONZ who passed away in July. This is one of many projects of national significance Cliff has left his tohu on. Moe mai rā e te rangatira, moe mai, moe mai.
