University of Waikato

The University of Waikato Tauranga CBD Campus building is a state-of-the-art, multi-purpose teaching and research facility designed to consolidate and reinforce educational opportunities in the Bay of Plenty. The aim of the new campus is to provide the missing link in the network of tertiary campuses in the region and support the local community in uplifting uptake of tertiary education in the area.

The design inspiration for the building facade was the mangopare or the hammerhead shark, which is a symbol of resilience and tenacity.
