Fale Pasifika

Website

The centrepiece of the University of Auckland’s Pacific Studies development, Fale Pasifika represents the shape and function of a traditional fale, yet meets the structural criteria of the NZ building code.

A fale for Auckland:

In many parts of Polynesia, a fale will serve multiple purposes throughout the day: from women’s committees in the morning to heritage and art activities in the afternoon, the building must serve many functions and needs. The two major components of Fale Pasifika at the University of Auckland are the Fale and the Academic Wing; it similarly serves multiple purposes, based on the needs of Auckland’s students and Pacific communities.

The Fale Pasifika’s form and structure is based on the traditional Samoan fale. Its high roof measures 11 metres which enables natural light to flood in through the transparent sides of the structure. Fresh air is introduced at low levels and extracted through vents in the roof, allowing the Fale to primarily operate without artificial lighting or air conditioning.
