Interactive installations promote New Lynn
Pray for sunshine this weekend because a group of students are inviting you to New Lynn for outdoor movies and backyard fun.
Over the next four days 120 University of Auckland School of Architecture students are hosting a variety of interactive installations and events as part of the Auckland Heritage Festival.
The students are collaborating with Auckland Council to bring you Here Now: Reimagining New Lynn.
They're curating 15 projects ranging in size following an informal path from Merchant Quarter, along Totara Ave, finishing on the corner of Great North and Titirangi roads.
The installations have been fabricated with a variety of materials mixed with sound, light and projection with some including free refreshments, outdoor movies and man-made faux backyards.
Project manager Esther Mecredy says the town centre was chosen because of its focus in the Auckland Unitary Plan as a hub for change.
"It's a great opportunity to link new audiences with New Lynn's heritage and get people excited about New Lynn as an active and transformative urban space."
The Here Now preview opens tonight at 6pm.
