In its inaugural year, 'Te Karanga o te Tui' - the Call of the Tui award - seeks to acknowledge those bodies of work that don't just reflect Te Ao Maori back to the world, but engage and embrace it as essential to its core. More so; it aims to promote an evolution of landscape architecture in Aotearoa, crafted with this foundation at the forefront - driving aspirations and pushing debate, all the while keeping its 'roots' firmly in the ground.This years winning entry brings these elements together, and pushes forward a path to take its message to new and broader audiences. With a rich integration of cultural values rather than motif - the work is compelling, yet humble - it is deeply embedded and rich - it is specific and engaged, yet accessible to all. The winner of Te Karanga o te Tui for 2015 is: Rae ki te Rae - Bicultural Research Design Project - Penny Allan and Dr Huhana Smith.- the judges noted: "A beautifully crafted and important research project, leading Landscape Architecture at the forefront of bi-cultural design. Its message while robust, can transcend cultural boundaries, to be read and understood by all.'
