Star compass wins landscape award
A park featuring a star compass on the coast between Napier and Hastings has won the New Zealand Institute of Landscape Architects’ Te Karanga o te Tui award.
Waitangi Regional Park and Atea a Rangi Star Compass was developed over three years by Hawke’s Bay Regional Council, local iwi, consultants, and other partners to restore the coastal wetland and tidal channels.
Judge Dr Jacky Bowring says it’s quite simple in its form but it does a lot did a lot with a little, providing an area for education on celestial navigation and te ao Māori and creating a sublime experience.
