2008 - 2013
Brooklands Park and TSB Bowl of Brooklands are transformed for the duration of the WOMAD festival. The site design links and identifies venues, landmarks and spaces for all activities.
The site design is about people, culture, creativity, and New Zealand. The colours, shapes and forms of the site design elements are lively and are intended to enhance the festivities of the event for all who attend.
Flower towers (landmarks incorporating information and signage) are situated in key site locations. These multi-faceted origami inspired structures appear to sprout from the ground.
Native flora standards line processional routes, celebrating iconic New Zealand flora such as kowhai and pohutukawa flowers.
Amongst the landscape, large scale, colourful, three-dimensional letters spell out WOMAD. Letters are intended to be climbed, sat on and interacted with for fun.
All WOMAD site design elements are the realised vision of the creative team at Boon Goldsmith Bhaskar Brebner Team Architects, led by Architect Murali Bhaskar
