Description

Join us for an interesting behind the scenes tour of the new convention centre, Te Pae. Its design is inspired by both people and place, with a strong design influence from the region’s mana whenua (people of the land). The exterior of Te Pae Christchurch is distinctive, reflecting the jagged outline of the Southern Alps evident in the venue’s angular skyline, while the exterior façade features 43,000 herringbone tiles, designed to evoke Canterbury’s braided rivers. You will be shown the various different design elements and hear about the team’s plans to make Te Pae a landmark venue and a treasure to be proud of.

Please allow an hour for the tour and note that some areas may be closed depending on what bookings and events are on. Meet at the main entrance on Oxford Terrace, in the foyer.
