A Tale of Settlement told through Conflict

The purpose of my thesis was to create the idea of a design intervention that provides the local Maori Tauranga Moana to reconnect with the landscape, as well as to re-ignite pride of place and re-establish memory of significant events. The scope of this thesis is placed within a Māori cultural context with a focus on the site of The Battle of Gate Pa, with association to fortified villages or pā and early European invasion and settlement of Tauranga Moana.
