After more than 130 years away, Mataatua Wharenui – New Zealand’s most travelled Māori meeting house was returned to the Ngāti Awa tribe. Our goal was to create an immersive experience to tell the history of the wharenui and Ngāti Awa; in a way that would respect and enhance this ancient building without eclipsing it. We achieved this ambitious project using ‘digital projection mapping’ which melds ancient carvings and modern technology.
