Abstract [en]

New Zealand’s Manawatu district is a fertile agricultural region in the lower North Island. One of the traditional centres of New Zealand’s wool production, sheep population, and vernacular culture, the Manawatu is now characterised by colossal windfarms and bleeding-edge agricultural science, a situation that demands new architectures catering to a rapidly changing landscape. Our project, Woolopolis, aims to consolidate the various functions and programs of New Zealand’s wool production into one dynamic community. Woolopolis takes the form of a complex network of programs - processing facilities at ground level, housing units lofted above, with the market functioning as the communal centre of the complex and mediating between the two.
