Te Mirumiru Early Childcare Centre

Feb. 7, 2017, 2 p.m.

Friday, 3rd February 2017 marks the 5th Birthday of Te Mirumiru Early Childcare Centre.
 
Te Mirumiru is based on the Maori tradition that all life is born from the womb of Papatuanuku.
 
The design for Te Mirumiru is an early childhood building for Ngati Hine in Kawakawa, New Zealand. The brief called for a building which would not only accommodates the tamariki but also teaches them about their culture and customs on a daily basis whilst having a minimal impact on the environment. In particular, the iwi asked that the building embody four significant cultural icons of Ngati Hine: tuna (eel), the ancestral waka, the ancestress Hine a Maru and caesarian birth.
