The Lye of the land

Due to open mid 2015 the Len Lye Centre in New Plymouth is well underway. 

Progress so far:
  • The stainless steel for the façade has arrived from Japan
  • The moulds for the shaping of the stainless façade have been made and tested
  • Second story precast walls are being put in place
To come:
  • The construction of a steel frame work to support the pre-cast exterior wall that will in turn be covered by the shaped mirror surface stainless steel.
