Joint sculpture submission between Stuart Forsyth, Jasmax architects and Dunning Thornton for the Wellington Gateway sculpture competition.

Concept: The sculpture's form is multi-layered in its meaning, drawing inspiration from:
- the coming together of many different cultures and people that make Wellington so diverse yet a unified community.
- the housing structures on the Ngauranga and Kaiwharawahara Pa sites that were in the area in the 1800’s.
- the weave of flax used to make Kete and “wharawhara” (Astelia Banksii) that grew in abundance on the surrounding hills.
- the overlapping tectonic plates that run underneath Wellington’s motorway.

Proposed material: Corten steel
Approximate sculpture dimensions: 15m Height x 24.5m Length x 11.9m Width.
