Auckland Museum – Grand Atrium Refurbishment

On entering the atrium, visitors are confronted by a large inverted dome that dominates the space.

Influenced by artist John Ecuyer, the dome is completely clad in Fijian kauri wood. Unexposed to the elements, the dark-wood cladding, with its band-sawn finish, is designed not to weather and provides a strong contrast against the white plaster walls.
