New Plymouth didn’t turn the weather on for us but it was great to one of New Zealands latest architectural masterpieces.
The Len Lye Centre adjoins the existing Govett-Brewster Gallery and provides some great spaces to display more of Len’s kenetic sculptures and other works.
Designed by Pattterson Associates the building is a sculpture in and of itself, the exterior is absolutely stunning and the concrete interior provides a wonderful contrast.
The level of detailing is some of the best I have seen.
While New Plymouth isn’t on the ‘main road’ between Auckland and Wellington it now sports a piece of World Class Architecture (in amongst many other gems) and is well worth a visit – even in the rain!
