Auckland War Memorial Museum

Tāmaki Paenga Hira Auckland War Memorial Museum

The suspended Tanoa Bowl is the centerpiece of Auckland War Memorial Museum’s newly renovated Te Ao Mārama, South Atrium. The distinctive geometric design, which represents the star maps used by Pacific cultures in navigation, was created with a custom aluminium frame and 108 panels of Barrisol Lation Gold. The backlit panels provide a warm glow which complements the timber throughout the Atrium. They also maintain acoustic integrity for the audio-visual experience beneath the Tanoa.
