Overseas experience

This weekend, if you can tear yourself away from free bacon sarnies and aren't too busy having a bit of a look-see behind the scenes of Wellington's art powerhouses, pop into the Overseas Passenger Terminal to get a glimpse of its proposed transformation.

Proposed redevelopment of the OPT - from the northeastThere will be a public open day on Saturday from 10am to 3pm, featuring plans, drawings, presentations and a scale model. You will be able to discuss the proposal with the designers (Athfield Architects), and there will be presentations at 10:30am and 1pm. This is the first stage of the public feedback process for this proposal and other waterfront developments, and you have until the 9th of June to submit your opinions and suggestions (a tiki bar, perhaps?). There's more information available in the On the Waterfront newsletter and concept design proposal (344kB PDF), and I've got more images and a lot of opinionated thoughts over at WellUrban.
