Fences down at Hundertwasser

Share This:

After more than three years, the construction fences have come down on Whangarei’s Hundertwasser Art Centre, and you can now see this spectacular building in all its glory. Unfortunately, the pandemic has delayed the public opening of the Art Centre and Wairau Māori Art Gallery until 20 February 2022. Still, you can now walk around the building’s exterior and visit the centre’s Aqua Restaurant & Bar.

TVNZ’s Seven Sharp came down to see what everyone’s been talking about and interviewed our own Darrell Trigg. We reckon he’s wasted on the tools (not that he’s on them much these days) and ready for a new career as a TV star. Our favourite comments are, “Makes you smile and scratch your head at the same time” and “People are just going to be flabbergasted, and they should be. We need more flabbergasting”.
