The Rock at Wellington International Airport that located in Studio Pacific Architecture, was designed by Wellington, New Zealand. The project takes its design direction from its rugged South Coast location. The copper clad buildings are to have coloured fragments of glass in the roof fissure to let in a warm natural light by day and backlighting at night to create a glowwhich will be seen from the air.
Wellington Airport CEO Steven Fitzgerald has endorsed the project’s design saying,. “Our radical departure from traditional airport design worldwide is entirely deliberate. What is set to become New Zealand’s newest iconic building, ‘The Rock’, combines functionality and capacity with what will be a memorable visitor experience”.
