Model Home 2013 / Michael Lin + Atelier Bow-Wow with Andrew Barrie

© Nick Hayes

Installed in Auckland Art Gallery’s Lower Grey Gallery for the 5th Auckland Triennial, the Model Home 2013 by and Atelier Bow-Wow, with Andrew Barrie, responds to the specific design challenge of recreating the building that was also exhibited at the Rockbound Museum in Shanghai in 2012. Originally made of welded steel frames clad in structural insulated panels, they explored the potential to translate the house into the Kiwi timber-and-plywood construction idiom. This would have reduced the cost somewhat, but not solved the dilemmas of waste and conceptual inconsistency. More images and architects’ description after the break.

Newly Released Photos of Shigeru Ban’s Cardboard Cathedral in New Zealand

Shigeru Ban’s Cathedral is officially open to the public, just over two years after the crippling 6.3 magnitude earthquake ravished the town of Christchurch. With an expected lifespan of 50 years, the temporary cathedral will serve as a replacement for the city’s iconic 1864 Anglican cathedral – one of Christchurch’s most prized landmarks – until a more permanent structure is built.
