Awhina

Awhina is a recent education, training and research ‘campus’ development within Waitemata DHB. Paradigm with Bernard Makoare designed an identity based on the traditional three baskets of knowledge – with a modern twist. A set of three carved stones are used in different ways to enhance the identity, including installations mounted on lasered recycled totara for each reception area. The stones are inspired by the traditional Maori symbolism of pebbles for higher learning practices especially healing and well-being.
